Politics — '72 

Getting It On 

George McGovern 

Election year 1972 is gaining 
.momentum nationally as Nor- 
thwestern students begin to put 
on a little mileage of their own. 
The two major parties are 
represented on campus and 
remain ever eager to welcome 
new supporters. The race is on. 


While the press labels George 
McGovern the youth candidate, 
Ronald Grappe, heading the 
campus re-elect Nixon 
movement, has no difficulty in 
discovering students who support 
President Richard Nixon. 
Grappe was elected last week to 
head the Natchitoches 
organization of Young Voters for 
the President. '

By R. Manning Jr. 

The new assistant director of the 
diversity Theater, Ray Schexnider, has

"The schedule this season is a little 
Iferent," Schexnider commented. "Instead

"Day of Absence," by Douglas Turner 
'ard, will be directed by Lawrence 
aptiste, a senior from Natchitoches, 
iiditions will be held today at 6 p.m., in

mce," has 25 roles, most of them for 
tack actors. 

"Endgame," by Samuel Bekett is an 
iperiment in "theater of the absurd." The 
rector James Wilson of Shreveport, will

* the Performing Arts in Washington, 

Schexnider took over the duties as 
distant director this semester when the 
fmer assistant, George Stewart, 
signed to complete requirements for his 
) ctorate degree. 

Schexnider is no stranger to the Speech 
Apartment. He is now in his seventh year 
''teaching at NSU. He has directed NSU 
Auctions of "A Man For All Seasons," 
^Kracle Worker," "Fantastics" and 
Thousand Clowns." 

touch of the credit for the successful 
'ldren's Theater also goes to Schex- 
*fer. He has co-authored, directed and 
>0 duced children's plays such as "Dan- 
">§ Dozen," "Fairy Frog — Super Star," 
v. Peculiar" and his latest, "Play It 
toin Horace." 

^hexnider's largest responsibility over 

* past six years has been his official 
'sition of NSU director of forensics. Last 

year his team was the only team in the 
state to win two tournament sweepstakes in 
one year. 

In 1970 at the Phi Kappa Delta national 
tournament in Houston, Tex., the NSU 
squad ranked seventeenth in the entire 
nation. One of the individual members, 
Sally Graham, placed sixth in the nation. 

With such leadership as this and that of 
Dr. Robert Black, department head, the 
coming University Theater season 
promises to be not only challenging to 
participating students, but entertaining for 

Nixon supporters met with 
Anna Walton, executive 
secretary, last Tuesday in the 
Student Union to discuss ten- 
tative plans, not only to 
demonstrate and gain support for 
the President, but also to increase 
student vote. Rallies, voter 
registrationi drives and a mock 
election are in the making. 

Young Voters for the President 
is a city-wide organization and 
members will be working closely 
with the Natchitoches 
Republican Party. They will be 
canvasing the city, parish and 
campus for the Republican vote. 

There will be a table setup in 
the Student Union this week for 
the purpose of signing up 
campaigners for President 
Nixon. Interested persons may 
also contact Grappe by phoning 
4307 on campus or Donna Rossat 
5146 on campus. 

The organization is open to 
anyone under 30 years of age, 
regardless of party affiliation 
and is not limited to NSU 
students. The organization's next 
meeting is scheduled for 6:30 
tonight in room 312 in the 
Student Union Building. 


There are problems facing 
McGovern supporters on this 
campus, but their ranks are 
growing fast and presently 
number approximately 90 
members. Co-coordinators of the 

McGovern movement, Roy 
Fletcher and Charles Herring, 
are attempting (to get in- 
dividuals to read th< progiams of 
their candidate and are stressing 
personal contact. They hope 
that after people understand 
their candidate's programs they 
will support the McGovern 

Committee members for 
McGovern and Shriver are 
manning tables in the Student 
Union daily to make information 
available to all students. Helen 
Tate is the group's secretary- 
treasurer, with Bill Karam as 
publicity chairman and Donald 
Baker as telephone committee 
head. The group is working 
under state headquarters 

The organization is planning 
several rallies with speakers and 
bands in hopes of raising 
campaign money and support. 
Such individuals as Mayor Moon 
Landrieu of New Orleans and 
Rep. Wright Patton of Texas are 
being contacted. 

In conjunction with the Political 

Science Society i (which sup- 
ports no one candidate, but 
wishes to increase political 
involvement), the committee 

may arrange for a Sargent 
Shriver appearance here. Even 
the possibility of Sen. Edward 
Kennedy is being planned. 

Fletcher stressed that not only 
students are invited to mem- 
oersnip. It is the committee's % 
hope that their efforts will 
overflow .into Natchitoches 

Fletcher is not a stranger to the 
political area and has cam- 
paigned lor the McGovern ticket 
in San Antonio, Tex. Knowing the 
difficulties of gaining support in 
North Louisiana, Fletcher set his 
goals at roughly 40 per cent of this 
area's vote for McGovern, but feels 
their chances are far better in South 
Louisiana. „ 

Richard Nixon 

Price New Director 
Of Louisiana Institute 

By Marilyn Miller 

When the summer semester, 1972, of- 
ficially got into swing so did John Milton 
Price, the newly appointed director of 
Louisiana Studies on campus. 

Price succeeds Ezra Adams as director 
and managing editor of the Institute. 

Adams has been director since 
December, 1969. During that time Nor- 
thwestern's first hardback book, "A 
Louisiana Confederate: Diary of Felix 
Pierre Poche," was published under the 
auspices of the Institute. 

The objectives of the Louisiana Studies 
Institute, which was organized on the NSU 
campus in 1961, are "the encouragement 
of original research and the publication of 
studies in various fields which contribute 
to a greater knowledge and understanding 
of Louisiana and its regional setting." 

As director of this institute, Price's main 
responsibility is to publish Louisiana 
Studies, a quarterly journal. 

"Louisiana Studies is interdisciplinary, 
which makes it a very good journal. Most 
publications are usually specialized but 
this journal is unusual because it is 
regional in scope, which makes me very 
happy to be publishing it," stated Price. 

Price, who also teaches History 408 on 
campus, came to NSU from LSU, Baton 
Rouge, where he served as head of the 
department of Archives and Manuscripts 

for the past three years. He also worked 
in the capacity of special lecturer in 
history. While there he was assistant to the 
editor of Louisiana History as well as 
assistant professor of social sciences. 

The new director who has minors in 
French and Russian history and an- 
thropology, completed his doctoral work 
under T. Harry Williams. Williams recently 
■won a Pulitzer prize for his historical 
biography of Huey P. Long. Price also had 
the opportunity to address the annual 
Historical American's meeting. .His address 
concerned the subject of slavery in 
colonial Louisiana, a topic which he 
researched in his dissertation. 

A native ofWinnfield, Price is a member 
of the Organization of American 
Historians, the Southern Historian's 
Assoc., the Louisiana Historian's Assoc. 
and Phi Alpha Theta. 

"I'm very happy to be at Northwestern," 

Price said, "It's like coming home. 
Everyone has been extremely helpful to 
me, especially President Kilpatrick, Dr. 
Frank Martin, Miss Loneta Graves, and 
Donald MacKenzie. Ezra Adams, of the 
Journalism Department has been 
especially helpful to me 

The Louisiana Studies Institute is 
presently under the supervision of Dr. 
Frank Martin. 

Learning Lab Developing 
For Blacks and Whites 

By Ernie 

A laboratory learning group is in the 
making for NSU, according to Dr. Robert 
L. Breckenridge, psychology faculty 

The program will consist of blacks and 
whites and will concentrate on developing 
interpersonal communication skills. It is 
also designed to facilitate communications 
between blacks and whites on campus, 
both privately and publicly. Integration 
has always been a tedious affair and 
programs such as this should help to 

McKeithen Claims No Misconduct 

The deadline for filing applications for 
class senator positions is tomorrow at 
Ijjp.m. Applications are to be turned into 
r- Galloway's office, vice president of 
^dent affairs. Elections will be held on 
*Ptember 27. 

Former Governor John J. McKeithen 
spoke to a group of about 300 NSU students 
Thursday about his campaign as an in- 
dependent candidate for the U. S. Senate 
seat that was vacated by the recent Allen 
J. Ellender. 

McKeithen, attired in shirt and tie, spoke 
to the students in front of the Student 
Union. His speech lasted only about 15 
minutes and was followed by a question 
and answer period. The entire appearance 
lasted about 30 minutes. 

McKeithen pointed out in his speech that 
his main attraction was the fact that he 
had much more practical experience in 
areas that were of major interest to the 
voters of Louisiana. Some of the areas he 
mentioned were the tidelands dispute, 
farmers, flood protection programs and 
industrial development. 

On the presidential election, McKeithen 
stated that "The election of George 
McGovern to the Presidency would be an 
disaster for the United States. I also know 
Sargent Shriver, and I like him not!" 

On his past administration McKeithen 
made it clear that he had never been ac- 
cused of personal misconduct and that his 
personal integrity was beyond reproach. "I 
have never taken a dollar for fees, 
promotion or anything of that nature.", 
said McKeithen. 

McKeithens past administration as 
governor of Louisiana was wrecked by 
accusations of corruption and in- 
competence. Many cases have been filed 
against officials of his administration with 
some still pending.

John McKeithen 

McKeithhen was asked repeatedly why he 
did not file for the Democratic primary 
when it was open. The inference was made 
that McKeithen was afraid to run against 
the deceased Sen. Ellender. 

"I decided to run as an independent 
because I think the time is right and that 
the people of Louisiana need an in- 
dependent that is not committed to any" 
party, but rather to Louisiana. The up- 
coming Congress has all appearances of 
becoming evenly split between the two 
major parties and an independent will not 
have ties to either party." was 
McKeithen's answer. 

McKeithen said that he feels present anti- 
pollution laws are adequate but en- 
forcement of off-shore violations has been 

McKeithen's opponent is J. Bennett 
Johnston, a Shreveport attorney who 
narrowly missed being elected the 
Democratic nominee for governor. 

McKeithen repeatedly made derocatory 
comments about a poll that Johhnson had 
run to show his popularity in the state. He 
told the crowd that the poll was what 
Johnston ran to every time something 
looked like it was going wrong with his 
campaign. The poll showed Johnston could 
defeat any candidate in the state by a vote 
of three to one at the time it was run. 


alleviate some of the misunderstandings 
and problems between the races. 

The Emergency School Assistance 
Program provided a grant through the 
Natchitoches Area Action Association to 
work with seventh graders in integrated 
schools. This program is also designed to 
help students work on communication 
problems and to facilitate integration. 

Several college students have expressed 
a desire to have a program like their at 
NSU and there have already been several 
small meetings conducted. 

Dr. Breckenridge has spoken to the SBA 
about) the program and hopes to receive 
their support. Final word has not been 
received for support of the project, but 
notifications should be received within two 

The program will be held off-campus 
and will run from 5 p. m., Friday until 5p. 
m., Sunday. The cost per student has not 
been calculated at this time. Meals and 
lodging will be included. 

"This is the first time we've tried 
anything this large and we will have to 
limit the number of participants to between 
60 and 80. As far as we know, this is a 
one time affair but if sufficient interest is 
shown there could be more." said Dr. 

The participants will be equally balanced 
in numbers of race and sex. The number 
is limited because NSU does not have 
sufficient qualified personnel tc deal with 
the participants. There should be one 
"guide" for every ten students. 

"We hope to help students learn more 
about themselves and about others. 
Hopefully, when they return to campus 
they can help others to understand 
themselves," according to Dr. 

Outside assistance will be provided by 
the Human Resources Training and 
Research Laboratory at LSU. This 
program is directed by Dr. Donald D. 
Glad, a clinical psychologist.

This Side 

Of Sanity? 

By Niva Chavez 

Politics, Politics 

Buttons, posters, bumperstickers, booths, 
arguments, and speeches. Election anyone? 

Students around campus are taking an active 
interest in promoting candidates in this year's 
presidential campaign. What better way to 
invoke involvement on the part of a student 
body, than the heated debating over political 
policies. Let's get it on. 

Caution Urged 

In the light of recent reported attacks in- 
volving three women students and a common 
suspect, students are urged to exercise caution 
while traveling about the campus at night. 

One of the reported attacks occured in the 
vicinity of Fournet Hall and another near the new 
library. In the third instance the victim was 
reported accosted near the Infirmary Building 
and was forced to walk towards the Business 
Administration Building. According to reports, all 
three girls were attacked by the same suspect. 

There are several sites around Nor- 
thwestern's campus which contain dark or 
concealed spots. These sites, usually against 
the walls and between buildings, should be 
avoided by passersby at all costs. Bushes, 
trees, stairways and embankments are perfect 
means for would-be attackers. 

Students should also avoid jaunts across 
campus unaccompanied. 

Lighting fixtures are in the process of being 
installed around the new library. However, 
students cannot expect the lighting of campus 
areas to alleviate the entire problem. 

Cautiousness on the part of students and 
installation of new lighting equipment, should 
aid in the prevention of other such incidents. 



Pollution is an exceptionally over-written 
subject these days. Trite to many. No wonder 
— every publication has its own little crusade. 
So not wishing to join these ranks, I'll cut 
this short. 

I make an appeal to students attending 
events held outside (like last Tuesday's 
speech) not to leave their paper cups, etc., 
lying around. It makes it difficult for me to 
find my keys that I always forget and must 
rummage through trash to find. 


A visiting political figure stood before a 
group of college-level students last Thursday 
afternoon and told the group that they should 
not consider his terms of office as governor of 
this state when judging his ability to hold the 
office as a U.S. senator from Louisiana. Isn't 
that a rather odd thing to say? What 
better way would a voter have of judging a 
person's abilities than by going over that 
person's past political performance. 

Another point I found odd was that not once 
during his speech did he mention any of his 
personal plans for trying to aid this state's 
education system. You've got to admit this 
system needs something. Could it be he felt that 
NSU students would consider these points as 
trivial matter? 

Puzzling things have been said to me this 
semester. Most of these I have come to un- 
derstand and-or accept. But recently, I was 
confronted with a real puzzler.

Dear Editor, 

I have long admired 
Richard Nixon, and I had 
thought he had done a very 
good job as President. Now, 
due to several events of the 
past days, I no longer feel this 

It had appeared to me that 
Richard Nixon had done all 
that he could possibly do to 
get out POW's home from the 
prisons in North Vietnam. I 
had complete faith that the 
bombing of North Vietnam 
would bring our POW's home. 

It seemed to me that bombing 
the dikes and flooding the 
fields were sound military 
tactics. This all changed 
several days ago with the 
announcement that two anti- 
war people had arranged the 
release of three POW's. Along 
with this announcement, 
David Dillengher, one of these 
anti-war people, stated that 
the Nixon Administration 
had blocked the release of 
POW's three other times. 

Then it became crystal 
clear to me, Richard Nixon 
does not want our POW's 
released when he cannot get 
the credit for it! Nixon has 
played politics with the lives 
of American servicemen. 

The second incident which 1 
made me see Nixon in a new 
light is the bugging of the 
Democratic National 
Headquarters. It would seem 
that John Mitchell and 
Maurice Stans, both high in 
the Nixon campaign, will have 
to go to trail for this incident. 

In the lastgovernor's elction, I 
voted against corruption in 
government all three times. It 
appears to me that I will have 
to do so again in November. 

I can no longer support 
Richard Nixon. It appears to 
me that he is an insincere, 
publicity -see king, corruptible

Respectfully Submitted 
Karen Whatley 
Clerk of Senate 

Dear Editor, 

There are some students on 
campus who are supporting 
George Mc Govern for 
president. I would like to point 
out some pertinent questions 
surrounding his campaign. 

McGovern has an income 
redistribution plan, over 
which there has been much 
confusion, simply because he 
keeps changing his mind. One 
of his plans is the $l,000-a- 
month club," that entitles 
every American to $1,000 
annually. From where will 
this money come? From your 
taxes. About a 50 per cent 
increase, say leading 

In his attempt to capture the 
minority vote, McGovern has 
said his cabinet will include a 
Black, a Jew, a Mexican- 
American, an Indian and a 
woman. This sort of racism 
should be weeded out of 
government, not encouraged 
(i.e. to appoint a Black man 
because he is black, prevents 
any White man from trying for 
the job because he is white. 
The point is that racial 
discrimination is wrong, 
regardless of which race is 
discriminated against). 

McGovern seems unable to 
make up his mind about a 
number of issues, but one 

thing that he seems pretty 
weiL decided upon is his in- 
clination toward a national 
policy of surrender. Having 
himself been a B-52 bomber 
pilot that led bombing raids on 
civilian centers in Germany, I 
can see how he would be in- 
clined toward a policy of 
amnesty for those Americans 
(sic) who chose to desert 
America rather than serve 
her. But I dare not imagine 
this man, or his concept of 
foreign policy ( i. e. "I would 
crawl to Hanoi on my 
knees....") Being the Chief 
Executive of our republic for 
four long years. 

I don't believe that America 
could survive four years of 
McGovern. I believe that his 
big government programs will 
further erode the concepts of 
individual liberty and 
responsibility that are already 
in peril, and herein lies the 
danger. The fact that his 
"extremism" is being 
espoused by the campus 
pseudo-intellectuals indicates 
a sickness within our society, 
a disease that must be thrown 
off. If we are to maintain 
principle in politics. 

David Luck, Chairman 
Youth Against McGovern 

Student Issues Warning 
To Wallace Supporters 

Dear Editor, 

At the beginning of the 
presidential primaries this 
year, it was clear to me the 
candidate who spoke for the 
average American. That man 
was Governor George 
Wallace. However, Governor 
Wallace was shot down in 
Maryland and could no longer 
carry on his campaign. 

The Democrats went ahead 
to nominate Senator George 
McGovern. I, like most other 
people, did not know too much 
about Senator McGovern. 
However, immediately after 
the convention, the 
Republicans labeled 
McGovern a "radical." I, 
again like most other people, 
believed what Nixon and the 
Repulicans were saying. 
However, I soon found that I 
had been brainwashed. 

After arriving at school, I 
obtained a report of what 
McGovern wants to do. 

After arriving at school, I 

obtained a report of what 
McGovern wants to do. After 
studying his proposals, I came 
to realize that McGovern was 
no "radical." I also realized 
many of his positions are 
very similar to Governor 
Wallace's. I am speaking of 
his ideas on taxes (reducing 
taxes, not keeping them the 
same as Nixon has said), his 
opposition to big business in 
government, and his op- 
position to a big government. 
Of course, he and Governor 
Wallace disagree on some 
points, but McGovern is much 
nearer Governor Wallace than 
Nixon is. 

I write this letter to tell 
Wallace people to beware and 
do not fall into the trap 
Richard Nixon and his "fat 
cats" have set for us. I urge 
all people who believe in 
George Wallace to vote for 
George McGovern. 

Sincerely Yours,

The student poverty level is 
interesting, boring, 
depressing, fun, challenging 
and creative. From the first 
day of college orientation, the 
student quickly learns to Live 
Without.Without food, without 
"nice" clothes, without the 
basic comforts of home (a car, 
and electric toothbrush, two- 
ply tiolet paper). So he walks, 
hitchhikes, rides, bikes or 
buses, cleans his teeth 
manually and adapts to one- 

The student learns to Ad- 
just, the Golden Word of 
college life. He majors in four 
years of Creative Survival, 
receives no degree for it and, 
even if he could , he probably 
couldn't afford the graduation 

Its the practicalities (like 
living) that are so difficult. 
Dorm dwellers have it 
somewhat more easy than 
apartment livers. Dormitories 
provide a comfortable tran- 
sition from hometo hovel. It's 
apartment living that presents 
the problems and challenges. 

Furnishing the apartment 
cheaply is an interesting 
game. Anything short of 
stealing is allowed. Not many 
students can afford Ethan 
Allen desks .Kroehler chaises 
and Sealy mattresses. 
Priorities change. In a typical 
student apartment, the door 
between the living room and 
the bathroom makes an 
adequate inner spring mat- 
tress. And the door between 
the bedroom and the 
bathroom (in most of these 
well-laid-out dwellings) 
makes an ideal desk, when 
propped on four tree stumps 
or two saw horses. 

Bottles are magically 
trasformed into lamps, sheets 
into curtain and room dividers 
(since all the doors have \ 
become furniture). Wooden 
electrical spools, ripped off 
and rolled home from a vacant 
construction lot, make a 
coffee table. A floor can be 
anything: a couch (modern, 
traditional, Franch Provin- 
cial), a stuffed chair, a 
rocking cha jr. 

Thrift shops, such as 
Goodwill and Salvation Army, 
are usually exploited by the 
antique dealers who get there 
first. But some good deals are 
to be found there— especially 
pots, pans and dishes— and all 
seem to have an over- 
abundance of such essentials

| Reveals Prison Horrors 

Inmates Present ' Cage 

just left somewhere great - going somewhere belter 


"The Cage," a play written 
and performed by a former 
inmate of San Quentin 
Prison, will be staged in 
the Fine Arts Auditorium on 
Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 8 p. 

The production, ex-convict 
Rick Cluchey's play about the 
horrors of prison, has made 
appearances in such places 
as Canada, Alaska and 
Hawaii. It has also played 
before the President's 
Commission on Crime in 
Washington, D. C, and at a 
special showing for members 
of Congress. 

"The Cage" explores the 
sick relationship of four men, 

all losing their sanity, 
sharing four walls of bars. 

The one-act portrait of 
prison existence attempts to 
effect changes in the system 
by informing its audience of 
prison life. 

The purpose of "The 
Cage" is not merely to en- 
tertain, but to communicate 
and educate. The Cage 
Production Company offers 
a three-part program that 
consists of classroom 
discussions, the performance 
of "The Cage" and a 
discussion period following 
the performance. 

The production originated 
10 years ago in the gym- 
nasium of San Quentin, where 
Rick Cluchey wrote the 80- 
minute dramatization of a 
day in a cage. 

Cluchey, a man serving a 
life sentence with no hope of 
parole, needed the warden's 
permission to perform "The 
Cage." To reduce conflict 
with the front office, Clut- 
chey set the play in France, 
although the events were 
taken directly from his San 
Quentin experiences. 

Two years ago, Cluchey's 
workshop began making 
preparations for the play. 
The Barbwire Theater, a 
nonprofit touring company, 
was formed. 

The company, which is 
devoted to penal reform and 
acting, requires that its 
members have served time in 

Largely as a result of 

"The Cage's" rapidly- 
spreading acclaim and his 
great contributions to the 
San Quentin Drama 
Workshop, after serving 11 
years and nine months in 
prison, Cluchey received the 
governor's clemency for 
parole in 1966. 

Upon release from prison, 
Cluchey has worked for 
numerous non organizations 
designed to help former 
convicts. The goal of the ex- 
convicts who tour the country 
performing "The Cage" is 
major penal reform. 

The money collected after 
each production is being 
used to build Barbwire

Prize money for this year's 
homecoming displays has 
been increased by as much as 
$50 according to Lucille 
Hendrick, dean of women, and 
co-chairwoman of the 
homecoming committee. 

The purpose of the displays, 
Dean Hendrick said, will be to 
welcome back alumni of the 
university returning on Oc- 
tober 7. The grand prize will 
be $150 and the four second 
prizes will be $75 each. 

The four classes of judging 
will be divided into residence 
halls, social groups, religious 
groups and special groups. 
Dormitories may enter under 
the first classification, and 
fraternities and sororities 
under the second. 

Dean Hendrick stated that 
entry blanks for the contest 
may be obtained in the Office 
of the Dean of Women but that 
all entries must be completed, 
submitted and filed in that 
office by Friday, Oct. 6, at 8 
a.m. Judging will take place 
the following day and an-

will be made at the football

will be "88 Years of Progress

Dye Confronts SBA Dutieq^ r 
With Confident Attitude \ 

RODDY DYE — The power 

of positive 

Last spring Roddy Dye, then 
vice president of the Student 
Body Association tSBA) 
was elected to the office of 
SBA president by a scant 55 
votes. Today he faces the 
formidable challenge of ef- 
ficiently administering what 
could perhaps be described 
as the most influential-and 
certainly the most difficult— 
I student position on any 
* campus. 

What quality of character 
enables Roddy to take hold of 
the reins of student govern- 
// / ment?

thinking, virtue is that he refuses to 
accept defeat. Roddy is by his

own admission, a winner. 

Baha'i Performer Seeks 
Unification of Mankind 

"It's time for the world to 
become one family, with no 
restricting barriers of race, 
creed, or social beliefs. That 
is, in essence, what we are 
aiming at," said Jim Seals, 
after the Seals & Crofts 
concert last Wednesday night. 

The articulate member of 
the talented duo, an ardent 
disciple of the Baha i religious 
sect, expressed a desire to 
communicate his particular 
beliefs on the brotherhood of 
man through his performing 
skill. But while the music of 
Seals & Crofts has been in- 
fluenced by the teachings of 
the Baha'i faith the two could 

hardly be considered 
musical evangelist s • 

Jim Seals and Dash Crofts 
are both gifted ^diversified 
performers. They are 
professionals. Ranging from 
the soft, melodic tempo of a 
penetrating ballad to the 
lively strains of rock ,the beliefs, 
music of Seals & Crofts 
manages to dispel any pre- 
conceived reservations that 
might develop due to their 
religious involvement. 

With a cap pulled over his 
shoulder-length hair, Jim Seals 
spoke freely of his mem- 
bership in the Baha'i faith. 

Admitting that a con- 
siderable amount of the 
material in the concert was 
specifically oriented to the 
Baha'i doctrine^eals believes 
that this method is a valid 
vehicle to convey his message. 

"A lot of songs and ideas 
have come from the writers of 
the Baha'i," he said. "For 
example, "Dear Sunday » 
expresses the total oneness of 
mankind... some thing that we 
all believe in very strongly." 

The Baha'i faiuy spin off of 
a religious movement 
originating among Moslems in 
Iran, officially began in 1863. 
Members have no clergy and 
no organized worship ser- 
vices. Their principle belief is 
in a spiritual unity of man. 

Though the number of 
Baha'i followers is relatively 
small, Seals has encountered 
surprisingly little adverse 
reaction to his professed

"Most of the reaction has 
been positive. The best thing 
about the Baha'i faith is that 
you don't have to be against 
any religion. It s a new, fresh 
idea that I feel is definitely 

"Some people, of course, 
may be offended because they 
really dont understand the 
Baha'i beliefs, Seals con- 
tinued. "I was around the faith 
for about eight months before 
I actually accepted it. 
Orginally I became involved 
to disprove the theory." 

Seals has noticed a growing 
interest among college 
students in discovering in- 
formation on the Baha'i faith. 
Through his university per- 
formances he hopes to further 
spread the Baha'i message of 
truth and love for all mankind. 

"Our goal is to make as 
many people as we can aware 
that the Faith does exist. At 
the same time, we try to uplift 
the audiences's spirit and 
make them happy." 

"I think possibly the most 
interesting thing that I've 
noticed on the college concert 
circuit is the reaction of the 
students to outdated ideas. 
Maybe now they're ready to 
accept a new concept of life, " 
Seals added. . 

The entertainers religious 
roots, however, were not 
always so firmly entrenched 
in the Bahafr faith. In 1958 Jim 
Seals, along with his partner, 
Dash Crofts, were in- 
corporated into the musical 

rock group, The Champs. At 
the time they were unaware of 
the Baha'i movement and the 
eventual part it would play in 
their careers. 

Seals and Crofts, riding the 
fantistic crest of popularity 
that ultimately dwindled to 
obscurity, were disenchanted 
with their new-found success. 
Organizing a new seven- 
member group known as the 
Dawnbreakers, Seals and 
Crofts discovered the Faith 
through a business associate 
of the rock aggregation. 

Looking back at the early 
days of his career, Seals said, 
"I spent twenty-five years 
thinking music and success 
were the most important 
things in my life. When we 
started reading the writings 
and teachings of Baha'u'llah, 
we were completely turned 

Seals further explained that 
the basic truths evolved from 
Baha'i thinking are that 
mankind exists as one entity, 
there is one God, and there is a 
new spirit or prophet ap- 
pearing approximately every 
1000 years. "Moses brought 
the laws Jesus brought love, 
and now Baha'l'llah has 
brought justice 

Jim Seals believes firmly in 
the future of mankind. "While 
the social aspects of our lives 
change from era to era, the 
spiritual concept will always 
remain the same,-. Seals 

Conveying this message 
through his medium of en- 
tertainment, Jim Seals does 
indeed have something to say. 
His only concern is whether 
someone is listening. 

"I can't stand to lose," he 
said. And borrowing a 
familiar axiom from a highly- 
successful football coach, 
Roddy added, "Winning's not 
everything, it's the only 

In the past criticized and 
maligned, Roddy utilizes his 
self-assurance to effecuve.y 
persuade others toward his 
line of thinking. A personable, 
likable young man, Roddy 
feels that his charisma will be 
an invaluable agent in 
working with both students 
and the university ad- 

"I know a great many 
people on campus, " Roddy 
said, "and tend to be sensitive 
to their situation. And I would 
do anything in my power to 
help them." 

But Roddy realizes that 
while his job involves sub- 
stantial prestige, it also 
represents organizational and 
public relations duties. "I 
can't take credit for anything 
that's accomplished this year. 
My job is one largely of 
organizing the effort-people 
exert their own initiative," he 

This summer Roddy served 
as the organizational manager 
for the Southwestern Co. in 
Ohio. Having had ap- 
proximately 70 young 
salesmen under his direction, 
Roddy feels that the 
knowledge he gained in this 
administrative capacity fur- 
ther prepared him for his role 
as student body president.

While working in the Mid-

"students at Kent State are

NSU "maintain a more

that Northwestern students 
"go to someone that can ac-

they feel something is wrong

Northwestern-s Gamma Psi 
chapter of Kappa Alpha has 
been honored with the most 
coveted award of its national 
order, the J. Edgar Hoover 
Award . 

The award, named for the 
late director of the FBI and 
former KA, was presented to 
chapter delegates at their 
annual training school held in 
Nashville, Tenn. in August. 

The J. Edgar Hoover 
recognition is based on college 
and community contributions, 
leadership, scholarship and 
citizenship. Gamma Psi 
chapter was chosen from 
almost 100 chapters 
throughout the United States 
to receive the honor. 

The chapter was also the 
recipient of another award 
presented at the school for 
excellence in chapter records.

Demons Battle Tigers 
On Gridiron Saturday 

Demon Stadium will be the 
scene of the clash between 
George Dohertys Demons and 
Dwight Fisher's Bishop 
College Tigers this Saturday 
with kickoff set at 7:30 pm. 

It will be the third grid 
battle for each team this year, 
and the first time these two 
packs have ever squared off 
against each other. 

The Dallas-based Tigers are 
out to better last year's 
unimpressive 3-7-0 record. 
Leading them in their at- 
tempt will be quarterback- 
captain Herman Jordan, who 
will rely on the ground-gaining 
talents of Herbert O'Neil and 
William Sullivan. 

The offensive unit is fur- 
ther bolstered by Danny

^avy witt, 


Washington, Johnny McCoy,

Defensively the blue-and- 
white-clad Tigers will depend 
on co-captain Bobby Brooks, 
along with Teddy Seals J.B. 
Wallace, Edward Burnett, 
Albert Moore, Alfonso 
Jaggers, and Curtis Vidrine 
to contain the Demons and 
prevent any home team 
scoreboard illumination. 

Overall, the Tigers do not 
seem to have the strength to 
stop the likes of Mike Harter, 
Donald Johnson, Joe Spitale, 
or Joe Beck Payne. 

Should the Demon quar- 
terback, be it Wilton Cox, 
Lynn Hebert, or Bill 
Alexander, establish even a 

semblance of a passing game, 
NSU will be unbeatable. ( 
We can look for a home 
team victory this week with or 
without the aerial circus, but 
sans a decent pass attack the 
Demons stand little chance of 
repeating last year's 6-14

Although Omega is a rookie 
to the fraternity league, the 
members of their team are 
no rookies to anyone. 
Manning the receiver slots 
are James Frazier and 
Michael Neely. Quarterback 
Robert Blow should provide 
the frat with all the fire 
power they need to advance 
the ball. Linemen Edward

Benjamin will play vital 
roles in Omega's bid for the 
league crown. Odell Brown 
and Leonard Ford look good 
at defensive back. 


One of the top contenders 
for the frat crown this fall 
will be KA. Quarterback 
Gill Beck will have good 
pass protection from of- 
fensive lineman Tootie 
Deemer. Receivers Randy

looking good along with

The key to Couyon 8's 
offense will be Richard 
Primm. If Primm's slingshot 
arm is at full strength, he is 
capable of hitting his 
receivers a majority of the 

time. His primary targets 
this fall will be Glenn 
Barn hill and Mark Murphy. 
Mike Milburn and Allen

well on defense while 
Richard Mc Bride stands out 
on offense. If everything 
goes well Couyon 8 should 
still be the team to beat.

Results Given 
On Complex 

The Research and 
Development Committee has 
announced the results of a 
survey taken during the 
summer registration to 
finalize student preferences 
concerning the construction of 
the Recreational Complex

referendum last May. 

The survey, made under the 
supervision of Dr. Otis Cox, 
contained a list of proposed 
facilities tr be included in the 
complex. StuHfnts were 
asked to make any deletions 
are additions if the list was 
not satisfactory. The results 
did not alter any plans in the 

The proposed facilities 
listed were ; 9-hole golf course 
with pro shop, tennis 
courts, an outdoor theatre 
area, a 50 by 25 meter outdoor 
swimming pool, a shuffle- 
board court, a putt-putt golf 
course, and picnic areas. 

Also for the inside, a lounge 
area, ballroom, food area,

games room, T. V. rooms,

Of the 1,459 surveys 
collected, 868 suggested no 
additions or omissions to the 
list. The highest areas of 
deletions were hostess rooms, 
145; shuffle board courts, 129;

cording to Karen Richey, 
chairman of the committee, 
the highest area of feasible 
addition was horseback riding

the surveys. 

A fee increase of $10.25 per 
semester effective after 
construction, was voted by the 
students for the complex 
which will be operated by a 
professional staff. The 
complex is designed 
especially for the students 
with first priority reserved 
for them. 

Youth Concert Opens 
Symphony's Season 


Dawes Heads Debaters; 
Art Of Careful Analysis 


Improvements have been 
completed on the marriage 
apartments recently, in- 
cluding the fencing off of the 
railroad tracks for the 
safety of the children. 

The white fences used last 
year were considered 
deplorable and new fences 
have been put around each 
apartment. The new fences 
have slats for privacy. The 
trash facilities have also 
been fenced in. 

The wooden apartments 
will not be used after the end 
of the fall semester. It has 
not been decided what the 
property will be used for. It 
is too close to the tracks to 
be used for a playground. 

Then closing down of the 
wooden apartments will 
shorten the number of 
useable apartments to 38. 
Painting of the exterior of the 
new apartments has been 
done recently, including the 
doors and trimmings. 

Dr. DeAnn 0. Dawes, 
assistant professor of speech 
and NSU's new debate coach, 
said debating is "an art of 
careful, intricate analysis 
which I love." 

"In debate," she says, "you 
take an intricate, con- 
troversial problem and 
analyze it in its upmost detail 
and then prepare a complete 
brief of logical reasoning 
about the problem. It's almost 
like working out a complete 
algebraic problem." 

The season's introductory 
debate squad meeting will be 
held today at 3:30 p.m. in 
room 155 of the Fine Arts 
Building. All students who are 
interested in debate or in- 
dividual speaking activities, 
whether or not they have had 
experience are invited to 
attend the meeting. Those 
students who are unable to 
attend should contact Dr. 
Dawes at 6564 or at her office, 
room 153 in Fine Arts. 

Two years ago the Nor- 

thwestern State University 
debate program reached its 
peak when its team made an 
impressive showing at the 
National Pi Kappa Delta 
Forensics Tournament. Last 
year the progress was still 
evident when NSU became the 
only college or university in 
Louisiana to win two tour- 
nament sweepstakes, at 
Southwest Texas State in San 
Marcos and Stephen F. Austin 
State in Nacogdoches. 

That peak was reached two 
years ago when Northwestern 
finished 17th in the nation and 
had one girl, Sally Graham, 
finish sixth in poetry in- 
terpretation at the National 
Forensics Tournament in 1970. 

It has taken Northwestern 
five years to build a respec- 
table debate program, and 
Miss Dawes said she would 
see that the program con- 
tinues to mature. 

Northwestern opens its fall 
debate season next month at 
Texas Tech University in 

Lubbock (Oct. 13-15), Other 
tournaments NSU will enter 
are at Texas Christian 
University in Ft. Worth (Nov. 
6-9), Western Kentucky 
University at Bowling Green 
(Nov. 10-11). Samford 
University in Birmingham, 
Ala. (Nov. 16-18) and Nor- 
thwestern State College of 
Oklahoma in Alva (Dec. 8-9) 
Miss Dawes has scheduled 
two tournaments at Nor- 
thwestern in the spring. The 
first is Feb. 9-10 for the Annual 
Forensics Tournament for 
high schools and the other is 
the 35th Annual Northwestern 
State University Speech 
Tournament for Colleges, 
March 1-3.

Rehearsals for the Nat- 
chitoches NSU Symphony 
Orchestra's seventh season 
began last Tuesday night 
with Robert Price the con- 

The symphony will perform 
three major concerts during 
the 1972-73 concert season. In 
addition to these, the or- 
chestra will perform a youth 
concert November 3, for 
some 2,000 school children in 
Natchitoches Parish in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium. 

The first major concert is 
November 10, and the 
featured piece is "Rhapsody 
On A Theme of Paganini" 
by Rachmaninoff. It is a 
piece for piano solo, with 
Constance Carroll of Cen- 
tenary College at the piano. 

The symphony orchestra, 
with 55 members, will 
feature Beethoven's cherished 
"Fifth Symphony," the most 
often played symphony of 
all orchestra literature, on 
March 2. 

Dr. William A. Hunt, acting 
chairman of the Department 
of Music, will conduct 
' Brahms Requiem" on 
March 30. This big production 
will feature the Natchitoches- 
NSU Symphony, the 
University Choral and ad- 
ditional singers from the 
city in a 3 p.m. concert. 

The first two major 
concerts are at 8p.m. in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium. 

The season actually begins 
with the youth concert, 
which will feature "Peter and 
the Wolf," from the work of 
Russian composer 
Prokofieff. It will be 
narrated by Richard Cage of 
the Department of Music. 

The Natchitoches-NSU 
Symphony has two road 
engagements for the spring. 

The first is March 8-9 
when it takes off on a bus 
tour of Rapides Parish 
schools for several children's 
concerts sponsored by the

SBA Presents 
rift To Library 





k total of $6,500,specifically tagged 
r the purchase of books, has been 
>nated by the NSU Student Body 
ssociation to the new Eugene P. 
atson Memorial Library. 
Unanimous approval of a motion 
donate the money to the library 
me during last week's SBA Senate 
feting. Greg O'Quin, chairman of 
e Senate, introduced the bill. 
This money represents ap- 
oximately half of the surplus from 
year's budget," O'Quin 

faculty To Research 
Mack Studies Series 

stated. He noted that the donation, 
which is to be used only for the 
purchase of books, is a way in which 
the entire student body can benefit 
from the SBA surplus. 

Donald N. MacKenzie, head 
librarian, commented, "We have a 
good library budget this year, but 
additional money for books is 
always welcome." 
O'Quin said that the money will be 
transferred to the library within the 
next few days. 

resolution to establish a Black Studies 
gram Committee has been passed by the 
Hty Senate upon the suggestion of 
sident Arnold Kilpatrick. 

lie purpose of this committee is "to study 
feasibility of developing a Black Studies 
gram in the state colleges and universities 

Appointed to the chairmanship of NSU's 
* Studies Committee is Joe Johnson. 
«" committee members are Dr. Ed An- 
! and Dr. Craig Lapp in. 

committee is in the process of studying 
*r colleges and universities across the 
*>n to determine the success of such a 

student survey will be conducted with the 
of the SBA to indicate the support and 
! of program that NSU students are in- 
^ted in. 

The program will be determined by the 
■fcss of such programs at other schools and 

the extent of our own student support," said 

Students will be able to express their 
opinions on the need for a Black Studies 
program. Questions related to offering the 
course as a major and minor will be covered 
by the survey. 

Students will be asked to indicate their 
interest in individual courses. Those 
suggested include Black Literature, Black 
History, t he role of the Back in America, 
African Problems of the Black. Other 
courses will be considered if students show an 
interest in them. 

The survey will also include questions 
concerning opinions on the use of Black and 
White instructors for teaching the course. 

The committee urges all interested persons 
to contact them and express their ideas 
concerning this program. The response to the 
survey will play a major part in the type of 
program established at NSU.

The committee will discuss the need for

They will also discuss funding, location, hours 
of operation, what types of equipment will be 
needed, and who will be qualified to operate 
the facility. 

The committee should begin holding 
meetings in about two weeks. At present 
there are no facilities of this nature in the 
area. Most students with hobbies are without 
proper facilities to work on projects unless 
they are taking a course relative to their 
hobby interest. The center will provide some 
of the facilities needed and will give students 
who have the same hobbies a place to meet. 

Goldberg To Speak 
Friday On Campus 

Arthur J. Goldberg will lecture at 10 ajn., 
on Friday, Sept. 29, in the Fine Arts 
Auditorium. Classes will be dismissed for this 
hour. A question and answer session will 
immediately follow his speech. 

Now a partner in a prominent law firm, 
Goldberg served as ambassador to the United 
Nations from 1965 to 1968. Before his ap- 
pointment as ambassador, Goldberg was a 
liberal justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. His 
appointment as ambassador was acclaimed 
as a man capable of "reconciling the 
seemingly irreconcilable." 

During his first few months as ambassador, 
when the question of Communist China's ad- 
mission to the US was brought up Goldberg 
stated, "The position of the United States is 
that until Communist China establishes itself 
as a peace-loving country, there is no place 
for it in the United Nations." 
While he was ambassador, the world wit- 
nessed the continued war in Vietnam, 
renewed fighting in the Middle East, a near 
war in Cyprus, and seizure of the"Pueblo" by 
North Korea. Goldberg once commented on 
Vietnam saying, "A military solution is not 
the answer ...the U.S. must search for a just 
and honorable peace." 

Later he said, "It should not be the 
American aim to impose a "pax Americana" 
on the world, any more than we would allow 
an alien rule to be imposed on us. ..we must 
follow a course between isolationism and 

Goldberg resigned his UN post in 1968 in the 
middle of Johnson's lameduck year as 
president. Goldberg was succeeded by 
onetime Undersecretary of State George W. 

From 1962 to 1965, he was an associate 
justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, having 
been appointed by President Kennedy. He 
also served as secretary of labor in Kennedy's 
cabinet from 1961 to 1962. 

As associate justice he replaced the aging 
conservative Felix Frankfurter. With the 
appointment of Goldberg, the "balance of 
power" on the bench shifted from con- 
servative to liberal. An oddity on the bench 
was that in the judicial year 19624963, nine 
cases were decided by a five to four vote. 
Each time Goldberg voted, he voted the op- 
posite of Justice White who was also ap- 
pointed by Kennedy. 

Although Goldberg was feared too liberal 
by many* he was a hard working justice. He 
remained one of the outspoken members of 
the bench until his appointment as UN am- 
bassador in 1964. 

As Kennedy's secretary of labor, Gold- 
berg's position was difficult enough, but his 
biggest challenge came from his having to 
break out of an identity mold. He had fought 
for 25 years side by side with organized labor,

and now he had the task of carrying out the 
same policies which he had fought against. 
Before taking office he ended all relations 
with the labor union, relinquishing a $25,000 

Goldberg was not free from criticism.George 
Meany disliked his being appointed to the 
position, and even tried to talk Kennedy out of 
offering him the post. Yet Kennedy trusted 
his judgement enough to give him an almost 
free hand in policy making. 

Goldberg was general counsel for the 
Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) 
from 1948 to 1955, and for the United Steel 
Workers of America from 1948 to 1961. He was 
also legal advisor to several individual 
unions, and his role as arbiter in labor 
disputes is well known. 

During this time when labor came under 
attack, he set up an ethics practice code 
which was adopted. This code led to the ex- 

pulsion of scandal-ridden unions such as the 
International Brotherhood of Teamster. 

Concerning his labor record, Goldburg was 
one of the chief authors of the 1955 agreement 
which later led to the merger of AFL-CIO. In 
the 1960 presidential election campaign, 
Goldberg worked to unify labor behind 

In addition to practicing law, Goldberg has 
had articles in leading American newspapers, 
legal publications and journals of opinion, and 
is the author of several books, including 
"AFL-CIO: Labor United." Another is "The 
Defenses of Freedom, the Public Papers of 
Arthur J. Goldberg" edited by Daniel Patrick 
Maynihan and published in 1966. 

Goldberg often quotes an Italian historian, 
saying, "We cannot be impartial. We can only 
by intellectually honest... aware of our 
passions and on guard against them. Im- 
partiality is a dream, and honesty a duty." 

Republican Discusses 
Vocational Education 

By Janet Vanhoof 

Ben C. Toledano, Republican candidate for 
the U.S. Senate, pledged to support efforts to 
divert federal educational funds for trade and 
vocational schools in the state as a solution to 
the welfare crisis. Toledano addressed a 
group of NSU students last Wednesday in a 
stop on his campaign tour. 

Opposing Democratic candidate J. Bennett 
Johnston and independent former governor 
John J. McKeithen, Toledano entered the 
race after the death of Senator Allen Ellen- 
der. With the splitting of the Democrats and 
the new race at hand, the Republicans 
replaced their original candidate with 
Toledano, who was better known in the state. 
Toledano had polled 42 percent of the vote in 
the New Orleans mayoral contest against 
Moon Landrieu in 1970. 

"Higher education is not one bit more 
important than vocational schooling," said 
the 40-year old New Orleans attorney when 
questioned about the status of universities in 
die appropriations. 

"The majority of the people in this state are 
not even suited to higher education," he 
continued but declined to say how the funds 
would be divided up. 

Capitalizing on the presidential issue, 
Toledano noted that he has known President 
Nixon since 1956. "A Republican 
Senator can do h.>,re good under a Republican 

Dismissing the usual issues in the cam- 
paign as political rhetoric, he explained his 
philosophy of government. In politics, 
Toledano asserted that the voters should make 
a distinction between influence and leader- 
ship. He listed three qualities necessary for 
leadership in the U. S. Senate: integrity, 
intellect, and strength of character. 

Attacking the voting records of Johnston 
and McKeithen, Toledano said that each 
shows that this opposition has resorted to 
imposing taxes to solve every problem. 
"Johnston slipped by without anyone looking 
into his records in the early gubernatorial 
primary since he was hardly considered a 
likely chance." 

Toledano noted that Johnston's service as 
McKeithen's floor leader would keep them 
from making an issue of their records. 

He resolved to solve the problems which 
have been left alone if elected. Toledano is a 
graduate of LSU with a Master's degree in 
American History and received his law 
degree from Tulane.

'Young Voters' Emphasize 
No Ties With New Party 

A new political party has recently made its 
appearance on campus. The group's name is 
Students Against McGovern. The party is still 
organizing and presently has approximately 
five members. They are supporting no 
candidate, stated David Luck, chairman, but 
are against several of McGovern's policies. 

Ronald Grappe, head of Young Voters for 
Nixon, emphasized that, "Young Voters for 
Nixon is not affiliated with nor does it support 
the Youth Against McGovern Movement." 

Students Against McGovern hope to have a 
booth in the Student Union in the near future 
to make information available to students on 
their purpose. 

"We wish to state that our purpose is to re- 
elect President Nixon," said Grappe. Ac- 
cording to Grappe, Young Voters plan to 
concentrate on the assets of Richard Nixon, 
not on the faults of George McGovern. Nor 
are they supporting any senatorial candidate. 
They intend to devote all effort to the re- 
election of the President. 

After meeting with Bob Reese, executive 
chairman of the Republican Party of Nat- 
chitoches, plans for canvasing 

were released. All members of the Young 
Voters will be working on campus this week. 
They will also assist the Natchitoches 
Republicans the day of the election. 

Mark Hanna will head the publicity com- 
mittee for Young Voters for Nixon. Rodney 
Harrington and Randy Jones will head the 
financial committee and the speakers 
committee respectively. 

Membership is still open for Young Voters. 
A Nixon table will be set up in the Student 
Union, 9 a jn.-2 pjn. MWF and 9 a jn. - 4 p jn. 
TT. The next meeting will be tonight at 6:30 
pjn., in Room 320 of the Student Union. 

Prison Play 

"The Cage," a play written and 
performed by a former inmate of 
San Quentin Prison, will be staged in 
the Fine Arts Auditorium 
tomorrow, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m. The 
performing company, which is 
devoted to penal reform and acting, 
requires that its members have 
served time in prison.

This Side 

By Niva Chavez 

Of Sanity? 

A student came to me with a complaint last 
week in which he felt he had been "victimized" by 
the house director in his dorm. As the student 
continued the turn of events, the incident became 
more and more involved, but I do feel the student 
had a legitimate complaint. 

According to the student, he had been allowing a 
friend of his to share his room last week because 
his friend's room was being occupied by another 
fellow. The student had been questioned by the 
resident assistant Wednesday night as to the 
identiyof the person sharing his room and what 
the reason was for his staying there. The 
student gave the resident assistant his friend's 
name and also added that this was a temporary 
situation. (Until his friend could return to his own 
room) . Later that night the house director tried to 
get in touch with the friend by calling the friend 
(by name) over the intercomm. The friend didn't 
happen to be there at the time. 

Then came the gist of the student's complaint. 
Thursday afternoon, upon returning to his room, 
the student was surprised to see that his friend's 
belongings were gone. He also saw a note from the 
house director asking the friend to see "him when 
he returned. The student stated that he thought 
that his friend had finally moved back to his 
room. Shortly afterward the power, which had 
been off in a power failure that afternoon, 
returned. The student then realized 

that several of his own articles were missing. 
Upon * inventory the student discovered that his 
clock, typewriter, several sweaters, laundry 
basket and even a whole dresser drawer and its 
contents were missing. Thinking he had been 
robbed, the student went directly to his house 
director only to find that the house director had 
these articles in his possession. 

The house director informed the student that he 
had drawn a line down the middle of the student's 
room an everything that had been on the friend's 
side of the room was confiscated in an effort to 
get the friend to see the house director. 

Upon contact Friday afternoon, the house 
director stated that everything had been done in 
accordance with school regulations and that he 
couldn't comment further at that time. He then 
referred me to Bill Swartz, director of housing. 

According to Swartz, the house director had 
kept him informed of the situation and Swartz, 
had given the house director permission to 
remove the articles from the student's room. He 
also said that the house director did not know who 
the illegal occupant was. This last statement does 
not coincide with the student's version of the 
situation. Swartzalso pointed out that they have to 
be very careful as to who is staying where, 
because they have had previous incidents where 
people were occupying rooms on campus but 
not even enrolled at NSU. 

Though I do not justify the knowledgeable 
breaking of dorm rules by the two students, I 
would like to point out that the removing of 
personal articles from a student's room without 
warning from the house director or permission 
from the student could have serious reper- 

If the house director did in fact know the name 
of the friend, it would seem that some other 
action could have been taken. 

In defining a student's rights, the law draws a 
fine line in cases such as these. Was the house 
director justified in his actions? Did the student 
rule out any rights he otherwise might have been 
entitled to, through his knowingly breaking dorm 
rules ? I' 11 lea ve this to you to po nder .

State of the Union 

By Jo Pease 

As classes and activities 
keep us busy, we are all at 
sometime grasping for time. 
So often I hear people say, "I 
can't-I don't have time!" or 
"I only had time. .I'd be glad to 
help". But then again, 
sometimes I hear, "I'll find 

In the production of any 
Union activity, time is im- 
porant. There's work to be 
done, limited time, and 
deadlines to meet. How does 
the show go on? Committee 
members, committee 
chairmen, interested students 
find time! 

At this piont, the most 
valuable possession is not a 
won election, a group of 
friends, a master plan, a 
perfect schedule, complete 
cooperation - the finest tool 
available is time .. that stuff of 
which minutes, hours, days, 
months, and years are 

Minutes of SBA 


When anyone is involved, 
time has new dimensions. 
There simply isn't enough to 
do all you want to do... even 
though you use every second 
of every minute to achieve 
what must be done ... Fact is, 
as you progress... the busier 
you are, the faster time flies. 

Time tomorrow looks so 
promising, leisure, so useable, 
but time today is hard to grasp 
and hold-until you discover the 
use of time for investing in the 
next generation , for making 
the world better, for com- 
mitment to policy in the in- 
terest of all. 

There is a time to become 
involved. It is now. There is a 
time to think. It is now. Time 
is a measure. Life is a 
measure. Your involvment in 
the world must be the 
measure of the time of your 
life. The time is now.

Co-Chairman Makes Reply 
To Anti-McGovern Letter 

Dear Editor, 

Please run the following 
letter in response to Mr. 
Luck's letter, in your recent 
letter to the Current Sauce, 
you made numerous false 
accusations concerning 
George McGovern's policies. 
You labeled these accusations 
as "pertinent questions," 
which shows your lack of 
information concerning 
George McGovern as well as 
your overabundant supply of 
misinformation and rhetoric. 
Mr. Luck, you should have 
done a little research before 
writing your letter. 
McGovern's economic 
proposals contain 
no $1,000 a person plan. 
Leading economists have not 
said that McGovern's econ- 
omic plans would cause a tax 
increase, but they have said 
that Nixon's proposed value 
added sales tax would entail a 
tremendous tax increase. 
McGovern's economic 
program contains these main 

First, every able-bodied 
American who wants work 
would be provided with a job, 
even if this job must be 
provided within the govern- 
mental sector. Secondly, 

McGovern proposes a $10 
billion dollar fiscal stimulus 
directed toward restoring full 
employment. Thirdly, 
McGovern is dedicated to 
stimulating conversion 
planning by the major arms 
industries to protect workers 
displaced by military cut- 
backs and to undertake new 
enterprises in the civilian 
sector, something Richard 
Nixon has failed to do. 
Fourthly, McGovern favors 
the Mills-Mansfield bill, which 
would eliminate major un- 
justified corporate and in- 
dividual tax preferences. 
Firthly, McGovern has 
pledged to end the present 
welfare system and replace it 
with an income security 
program, which will be more 
simple to administer and will 
not overburden, as at present, 
the lower middle and middle- 
income taxpayer. McGovern 
has not said that his cabinet 
would include a Black, 
Jew, Mexican-American, 
Indian and women. McGovern 
has condemned the quota 
system. You should be sure of 
your information before you 
present it as fact. 

As for amnesty, we have 
granted amnesty after every 

major war. Why should this 
war in Vietnam be any dif- 
ferent. I have found out that 
most of those who oppose 
amnesty are not the soldiers 
who served in Vietnam, but 
are those who dodge the draft 
with college deferments. 
McGovern has not proposed 
general amnesty-again you 
don't know the facts. 
McGovern's amnesty 
program is a qualified am- 
nesty. Part of it is a case by 
case basis, and those soldiers 
who came under the 
jurisdiction of military courts 
would have to be tried before 
these courts. The trouble with 
you, Mr. Luck, is that you 
don't know the facts, 
haven't taken the time to 
examine these 

programs. You would rather 
attack the patriotism and 
character of those who don't 
believe in your extreme right 
wing reactionary 
philosophies, than take the 
time to search for the truth. 

Charles Herring 

Co- Chairman

Committee For 
McGovern- Shr iver 

Candidate Gives Support 
To "Outspoken" Officers 

Dear Editor, 

As a candidate for senior 
class senator for the past few 
weeks of this fall semester, I 
have been attending the SBA 
meetings held regularly on 
Monday night at 6 pjn. I have 
noticed one person in par- 
ticular who lets his opinions be 
knownon most issues affecting 
the entire student body and 
university. That individual is 
Steve McGee, SBA vice- 
president. It is evident that 
McGee does more than just 
attend the meetings. During 
the week prior to the meeting 

he researches issues due to 
be brought up on the up- 
coming Monday, staying in 
close contact with Dr. 
Galloway, vice president of 
student affairs, advisor to the 
SBA. When an issue is 
presented before the senate 
for discussion and vote, 
McGee usually has something 
to say in regard to it. 

At the time of this writing 
McGee has presented, with a 
great deal of assistance from 
senator Ronnie Grappe, more 
motions and bills for change 

than has any other SBA 
member. It is with this type of 
continued leadership that the 
SBA will effectively represent 
all students at NSU. 

This letter is not to say that I

Student Voices Opposition 
To Last Week's Letter 

Dear Editor, 

In your September 19,1972 
issue, a Mr. David Luck wrote 
a letter concerning those 
people who support Senator 
George McGovern on campus. 
As can be shown by the name 
of the organization he 
represents, Youth Against 
McGovern, Mr. Luck is not for 
anything. He's not for 
President Nixon. He is just 
against Senator McGovern. To 
hold such a negative attitude 
as this, I am sure that Luck's 
organization should be Youth 
That Hate « McGovern. Mr. 
Luck's letter is full of blind 

First, it seems that Mr. 
Luck is very afraid of having a 
Black, Indian, Jew or a 
Chicano in the Cabinet. "The 
point is" that if Mr. Luck's 
Cabinet is not all white, or if 
any man suggests that it not 
be all white, Mr. Luck is ready 
to label them as a "disease (in 
our society) that must be 
thrown off." Is it really that 
bad, Mr. Luck ? 

Secondly, Sen. McGovern 
never flew a B-53in World War 
n. B-52's were not even made 
at that time. However, Sen. 
McGovern did fly 35 combat 
missions in a B-24. His cool 
courage in crash landing his 
battered B-24, the Dakota 
Queen, after a raid, won him 
the Distinguished Flying 
Cross. George McGovern is 
really a coward? No one will 
believe that, Mr Luck. 

Thirdly, Mr. Luck,you say 
that "extremism" that is 
being espoused by the campus 
pseudo-intellectuals indicates 
a sickness in our society. A 
disease that must be thrown 
off." The extremist you are 
talking about must be the 
people that are working for 
McGovern. If that be the case 
then I guess Mayor Richard 

Daley, Rep. Wilbur Mills, 
Lyndon B. Johnson, Sen. 
Edward Kennedy and 
Mayor Moon Landrieu are all 
extremists. Very un- 

Your letter is the work of a 

tortured man that cannot keep 
up with the social change in 
our country. It is a letter filled 
with so much hate that you 
can see nothing but little pinko 
communists running around 
the campus. There is an 
organization which would like 
to have you as a member. 
That organization is the John 
Birch Society. Farewell my 
tortued one.

Nixon Logic 

Dear Editor, 

Four years ago Richard 
Nixon made this statement. 
"An adminsitration that 
cannot end this war in four 
years does not deserve to be 
reelected by the American 
people." I think we should 
follow his advice.

Pineda is also interested in student counseling because as

Newspapers Established 
By Dormitory Residents 

In order to increase com- 
munication between dor- 
mitory residents and the 
Associated Men Students 
(AMS) and the Associated 
Women Students (AWS), 
dormitory newspapers are 
being started. 

Two papers have begun and 

there should be another one 
starting, Doug Spears, 
counselor for Natchitoches 
stated. Natchitoches and 
Rapides have papers out now 
and Prudhomme is trying to 
start one.

sophomore journalism major 
from Slidell and head of 
Rapides' newspaper, com- 
mented that the papers would 
try to get residents involved in 
the dormitory, tell them of 
happenings around the dor- 
mitory and campus, and get 
them interested in projects 
around the university. 

James Sorgee, counselor of 
Rapides expressed that any 
one may submit articles to the 

Any one wishing to submit 
articles may do so by notifying 
any AMS-AWS repr- 
esentative. Anyone wanting 
to work on a dormitory paper 
may contact Sanchez by 
phoning 5173 for the Rapides 
paper and Wanda Chicola at 
6379 for the Nachitoches 

The names of the papers are 
The Natchitoches Insider and 
the Rapids Rider. The 
Rapids Rider is only a ten- 
tative name and Sanchez 
hopes residents of Rapides 
will send in other names for 
the paper. 

According to Spears, The 
Natchitoches Insider will 
come out each week hopefully, 
depending on the amount of 
response. The Rapids Rider 
will try to come out every two 
weeks according to Sanchez.

The Boys of Summer. By 
Roger Kahn. Harper& Row. 
New York, 1972. $8.95. 

Atop the New York Times 
best seller list for the last 
several months, "The Boys of 
Summer" is more than just 
another narrative of the great 
days of baseball and the 
names that dot the Hall of 
Fame. Combining the now- 
popular nostalgia craze with a 
valid behind-the- scenes in- 
sight into the game, Roger 
Kahn succeeds in making his 
autobiographical work 
fascinating reading for those 
not even particularly in- 
terested in the sport. 

Kahn traces his early ex- 
periences as a sportswriter on 
the New York Herald Tribune 
in "The Boys of Summer". 
Covering the perennial pen- 
nant-winning Brooklyn 


Dodger team of the '50's, Kahn 
brings in personalities and 
humorous inside stories to 
make the work several dif- 
ferent books in one. 

Perhaps the most readable 
portion of the book is Kahn's 
account of his somewhat 
unorthodox family. His 
mother, the embodiment of 
the Jewish mother and the 
most entertaining since Philip 
Roth unleashed 
Mrs. Portnoy, figures 
prominently in her son's 
beginning interest in jour- 
nalism and baseball. 

Kahn reminisces fondly of 
the close relationship he 
shared with both his grand- 
father and his father. Each 
encouraged him to follow the 
sport that Kahn followed 
earnestly and pushed him 
toward his newspaper career . 

"The Boys of Summer" is a 
book about people. It's a book 
about a young boy 's dream 
coming true, a family en- 
couraging their son's 
aspirations, and his 
maturation as he attains his 
goals. "The Boys of Sum- 
mer", ringing with the cry of 
"Batter up" from Ebbets 
Field, is a sentimental, 
moving book. To dismiss it as 
another sports book . and to 
neglect the true substance of 
"The Boys of Summer" is a 
colossal error in judgement. 

Northwestern 's infirmary- 
received a complete overhaul 
this summer in which major 
adjustments were made. Dr. 
Richard Galloway, vice- 
president of student affairs 
and in charge of infirmary 
management, estimated that 
$18,000 has been spent on the 
recent renovation. 

The money needed to 
finance this project came 
from the school's revolving 
fund. "We had to go to the 
State Board of Education, 
which is our governing body, 
and get permission to spend 
the money for renovation," 
reported Galloway. 

"The building itself is 
basically as sound as any 
building on campus. It is so 
sound that we didn't need a 
new building, so we just fixed 
up the old one," said 
Galloway. 'I think the im- 
provements help out a whole 
lot. Some parts still need to be 
painted and retiled, but we 
hope to do this in the near 

Among the major im- 
provements made in the 
infirmaryis the installation of a 
new fluorescent lighting 
system which provides a 
brighter and better grade of 
light. The ceilings have been 
lowered to nine feet and in- 
stalled with acoustical tile and 
insulation to insure greater 
heating, cooling and quiet. 

The kitchen has been 
completely redone with 
paneling, built-in cabinets and 
new cooking appliances. The 
infirmary also received a 
bathtub, lavatories and 
washing machines. This 
additionalequipment heightens 

efficiency and allows the 
infirmary to be less dependent 



About 250 residents of 
Rapides Sabine, and Varnado 
enjoyed a picnic supper and 
entertainment by fellow 
dormitory residents Wed- 
nesday evening. 
Sponsored by each hall's 
dormitory council, the affair 
was termed a success by 
those who participated. This 
was the first such outdoor 
party of this semester and 
plans may be in the making to 
have the concept become a 
monthly occurrence. 

The gathering was held 
behind Rapides and food was 
provided by Iberville Dining 
Hall. Master of Ceremonies 
for the entertainment portion 
of the program was Dr. C. B. 
Ellis of the Sociology 
Department. Dr. Stan 
Chadick, assistant professor 
of mathematics, represented 
the faculty in providing en- 
tertainment for the residents 
of the three dormitories. 

upon other 

facilities on 

The exterior of the building 
was repainted and most of the 
inside. New doors, screens 
and windows were installed all 
around the outside. These 
repairs give an added and 
much needed freshness to the 

The decorative aspect of the 
renovation can be seen in the 
treatment rooms where the 
walls have been paneled in 
natural birch and the floors 
have been fully carpeted. The 
two doctors' offices were also 
remodeled with new car- 
peting, paneling and drapes. 

Improvements yet-to-come 
are the acquirement of ten 
regulation hospital beds which 
will provide greater comfort 
for the patients. The reception 
room will receive a color 
television set and the two 
large wards have new drapes 
on order. These new additions 
are expected to come in at any 

Opal Gimbert, supervisor of 
nurses for the infirmary, feels 
that the' renovation "was 
long overdue." "The in- 
firmary was just worn. After 
so many years since the last 
work was done in 1956, you 
can imagine the condition of 
the building. It simply needed 

When Gimbert came to the 
infirmary 17 years ago 
everything was in dire need of 
repairs. They painted parts of 
the building, recovered the 
furniture that had worn 
through, and did a complete 
"clean-up." According to 
Gimbert there has not been 
any other work done on the 
infirmary since 1956. 

Gimbert is delighted with 
the recent "brightening" of 
the infirmary. The changes 
serve to benefit both the in- 
firmary staff and the patients. 
"The infirmary is now a 
pleasure to keep," said 

The infirmary was built in 
1914. It was much smaller 

than it is now and took in what 
is now the South Wing. The 
rest of the building, giving it 
its present size, was added in 
1939. During these beginning 
years the infirmary had no 
doctor on duty. If a doctor 
was needed the infirmary 
called the different physicians 
in the city until one could be 
found who could make a call at 
the infirmary. 

The infirmary now has two 
doctors, Dr. David Henry and 
Dr. Joseph Thomas, who call 
on the patients each day 
between 5:30 and 6:15 pjn. 
They also are on call both day 
and night if needed in an 
emergency. In the future 
Gimbert hopes to have a 
doctor on duty for an hour in 
the morning in addition to the 
afternoon call. 

As supervisor of nurses, 
Gimbert is responsible for 
finding qualified registered 
nurses to work full-time. She 
also does all the hiring and 
training of the student help 
which numbers ap- 
proximately 12-14 per 
semester. Restocking supplies 
and the general management 
are under her direction. "My 
biggest problem is sorting the 
patients - who can stay and 
who can't," said Gimbert. 

The infirmary is equipped to 
handle 40 bed patients. There 
are usually 6-12 confined to 
bed. The largest number 
ever confined at one time was 
39 in 1957 during an Asian flu 
epidemic. Anywhere from 125- 
150 students come to the in- 
firmary daily. Those most 
common ailment reported is a 
complaint of a sore throat or 
a cold. If an emergency arises 
that the infirmary is unable to 
cope with they contact the 
Natchitoches Parish Hospital 
who gives aid and service to 
the infirmary.

formers of "The Cage"

answer session for in- 
terested students in the

Saturday theDemons trek to 
Monroe to do battle with the 
Northeast Louisiana Indians 
and continue a rivalry dating 
back to 1949. 

The Redmen lost only 10 
lettermen and have 37 back 
from last year's 4-6-1 club. Of 
the 37 returning, 17 are 
regulars. Additional help can 
be expected from new comers 
and last seasons redshirts. 

One standout is sophomore 
quarterback Don Smith. 
Missing the first two games 
last year, he still managed to 
complete 75 of 193 passes for 
1,022 yards and rushed for an 
additional 123 yards in 73 
carries for a 1445 yard total. 

.Further aerial threat is 
provided by former Nassau 
(N.Y.) Junior Collegiate Joe 
Adamo, who was responsible 
for five completions of nine 
attempts for 70 yards against 
Miss. St. 
On the receiving end of 

Smith's and Adamo 's 
deliveries are Rubin Jones, a 
9.7 sprinter, Larry Gene (9.2) 
and Gerald Prince (9.7) 

Jimmy Edwards, a 9.7 man, 
is the Indians' chief workhorse 
when it comes to running the 
ball. Against Quantico he 
chewed up 156 stripes, but the 
Bulldogs of Miss. St. , held him 
to a meager 36. 

The Tribe's two top 
fullbacks, Bobby Scelfo and 
Don Stroderd, were out of the 
Miss. St. game due to injuries 
sustained earlier in the week. 
It was unknown at press time 
whether they would run 
against NSU. 

This Saturday's game looks 
like it will be one of NLU's air 
assault vs. NSU's infantry 
attack, with the Demons 
determined to avenge last 
year's homecoming heart- 
breaker, when the Tribe 
squeaked by 1544.

We invited a few friends for dinner 
and they helped clean up the Genesee River. 

With the aid of a few thousand pounds of microorga- 
nisms, we're helping to solve the water pollution problem in 
Rochester. Maybe the solution can help others. 

What we did was to combine two processes in a way 
that gives us one of the most efficient water-purifying sys- 
tems private industry has ever developed. 

One process is called "activated sludge," developed 
by man to accelerate nature's microorganism adsorption. 
What this means is that for the majority of wastes man can 
produce, there is an organism waiting somewhere that will 
happilv assimilate it. And thrive on it. 

The breakthrough came when Kodak scientists found 
a way to combine the activated sludge process with a trickling 
filter process and optimized the combination. 

We tested our system in a pilot plant for five years. 

At Kodak, we were working on environmental improvement 
long before it made headlines. I And the pilot project worked 
so well, we built a ten-million-dollar plant that can purify 
36-million gallons of water a day. 

Governor Rockefeller called this "the biggest volun- 
tary project undertaken by private industry in support of 
New York State's pure-water program." 

Why did we do it? Partly because we're in business to 
make a profit— and clean water is vital to our business. But in 
furthering our own needs, we have helped further society's. 
And our business depends on society. 

We hope our efforts to cope with water pollution will 
inspire others to do the same. And, we'd be happy to share 
our water-purifying information with them. We all need clean 
water. So we all have to work together. 


More than a business.

"Since the freshmen class 
constitues the largest single 
faction on campus, more

the student body," Wozniak

member of the court for the

in passing key legislation that 
has helped the student body 
as a whole. He was on the 
health and related services 
committee which was in- 
strumental in getting MEKA 
on campus. He will support 
liquor on campus because he 
feels the students should not 
be denied what other schools 
in the state have. 

His experience in the SBA 
will be his greatest asset he 
feels . If re-elected his main 
objective will be to continue to 
act upon students demands.

students is not being heard. If 
more people would become 
involved NSU would be a 
better school." Tommy

what benefits can be realized, Goldberg 
admitted that a balance of power in govern- 
ment is necessary in a functional society. 

Turning to the upcoming presidential 
election, Goldberg, a Democrat and sup- 
porter of his party's nominee, refused to 
admit that McGovern chances for victory 
were minimal at this time. During his in- 
terview, Goldberg said, "I don't think anyone 
can tell until the actual election vote." 

"I don't think the issue is liberal or too 
liberal. Voters are becoming more non- 
political. Now they ask 'Does he have 
character?"We still have five weeks left in 
the campaign, and in that time, character will 
focus," he added.

Asked of his reaction to the Arab terrorist 
activity at the Summer Olympic Games in 
Munich, Germany, Goldberg responded that 
he deplored such acts of wanton violence. 

Goldberg, who served as U. S. ambassador 
to the UN from 1965-68, stated in the interview 
that he joined the diplomatic force because "I 
felt this country needed help in foreign 
relations. Now I regret it. The principals for 
which I stood for need vindication." 

Goldberg expressed a belief that trie UN has 
not adequately lived up to the potential 
promise set forth by its originators in 1945. 
"We have learned that we are not secure by 
factions. Our survival is at stake. The UN as 
such hasn't realized the thoughts of its 
creators. We haven't learned it yet." 

Constitutional Issue 

Results In Question 
On Senate Election 

(Editor's Note: As a result of students con- 
testing last week's SBA 
senatorial election, a revised announcement 
of winnners and run-off candidates may 
appear before tomorrow's run-off election. 
Because of deadlines for production of this 
publication, only the nature of the con- 
stitutional question and possible arrangement 
of candidates can be discussed.) 

After last Wednesday's senatorial election 
five candidates were validated to be win- 
ners by the Elections Board and eight others 
were to compete in a run-off election. But 
Friday afternoon three students filed written 
protest concerning the election of the co- 
chairman of the board. The protest was 
legally filed according to the constitution 
within the 48 hour deadline after the closing 
of the polls. 

This protest went before the student senate 
and if appealed may go before the student 
superior court. The nature of the protest 
concerns interpretation of the SBA Con- 
stitution of Northwestern on the matter of 
how a majority of votes required for election 
will be determined. 

The student constitution states in Article V, 
Section 4, Clause 5, "All candidates for Class 
Senators or Senators-at-large receiving a 
majority of votes cast shall assume office 
after the first balloting. A run-off election 
shall be held no later than one week after 
the initial balloting. The top number of can- 
didates equal to not more than twice the 
number of seats vacant after the first 
balloting shall qualify for the run-off elec- 

In question is the way to determine a 
majority to win an election. If 150 students 
vote in a class election then each person will 
cast two votes as two positions are open. 
Hence, a total of 300 vote* touJu bt cast by 150 
students. The Elections Board, in their 
calculations for determining a majority, took 
the number of students voting. Theoritically, 
in this case, a majority would be 76. 

Those contesting the election are asking 
whether it is not the total votes cast (here 300) 
in determining the majority. In this case the 
figure for a majority with 150 students casting 
two votes would be 151 .Or one-half plus one 
of the total votes cast (300). 

Clearing up this question now will make it 
easier to determine all future elections. As 
the constitution is vague the question would 
have eventually arisen in some other election. 

This is the question raised by Dane Hine, 
Tommy Damico and Mike Lombardino. The 
decision on this matter will greatly effect the 
election results of last week. The only definite 
victory at this time is graduate Adrian 
Strother who received a 22 vote total majority 
over his opponent Lynn Calcote. All other 
class elections will need further tabulation 
and a decision of interpretation. 

If the decision of interpretation goes in 
favor of the three students appealing, the SBA 

will make every attempt to inform all 
students of the revised ballot of candidates 
before the polls open Wednesday. Voting is in 
the Student Union between 7 ajn. and 7 pjn. 

If the decision goes in favor of the Elections 
Board, the announced winners will remain 
valid. Tentative victors are Nina Martin, 
senior; Linda Fulgham, junior; Rodney 
Harrington, sophomore; and H. Lindsey 

Torbett, freshman. Tentatively entering the 
run-off are seniors Eddie Hebert and Don 
Lazarre, juniors Dane Hine and Tommy 
Damico, sophomores David Dollar and 
Robbie Fowlkes, and freshmen Tenny Branch 
and Blaine Fontenot. 

The SBA may not postpone the election for 
the constitution states the run-off must be 

held within a week of the first election. 

Also the question raised by the three 
students can be termed completely valid as 
the constitution is vague on this matter. 

Roddy Dye, president of SBA, said, "The 
party contesting the election may be 
justified in their claims. At the same time, I 
see the Elections Board acting correctly as 
they under stood their duties. The question 
is a matter of interpretation of our con- 

There are problems concerning the 
decision. In last Wednesday's election, a 
scant 772 students voted. (This figure in- 
cludes election results tallied by the Elec- 
tions Board at clinical in Shreveport.) 
Receiving a total majority when one class has 
as many as eight candidates would be dif- 

Yet if a majority is determined in the old 
manner more than two candidates 'Could 
receive a majority. 

Because of the complexity of the election 
tomorrow, students are urged to be as in- 
formed as possible before going to the polls. 
Again, the tentative list of candidates within 
this article may change according to the 
decision. reached, and every attempt 
will be made to inform students if changes 
Ho occur. 

Union Requests

The deadline for accepting nominations for 
the Lady of the Bracelet has been extended, 
according to Jo Pease, president of the Union 
Board. More contestants are needed as soon 
as possible. 

Planning sessions have begun, and com-

Ticket Sale Begins 
For Theater Season 

By R. Manning Jr. 

"University theater season tickets are now 
on sale at the Little Theatre box office in the 
Fine Arts Building," announced Dr. Robert 
Black. Dr. Black, who is head of the Depart- 
ment of Speech and Journalism, also an- 
nounced the complete 1972-73 schedule of 
productions to be done by the theater com- 

"Season tickets for this year are five 
dollars," said Dr. Black, "but individual 
admission is $1.50 for each performance. That 
means a season ticket holder will save $2.50 
And season ticket holders may reserve seats 
before general admission." Patrons may 
purchase season tickets now at the little 
theater box office or by calling 3574179 from 
1-5 p. m., Monday thru Friday. 

"Intrigued with the fluidity and the stability 
of man and his theater, the Davis Players 
have chosen a program of reflective plays 
that range widely (even wildly), and they 
hope the audience will enjoy and savor the 
coming evenings of fun and fright and 
r e alities," said Dr. Black. 

Three plays from the "Theater of the Ab- 
surd" are planned for October 11-14. All 
three of these short plays will run each night 
in a bill. They are: 

1. "Endgame" by Samuel Beckett will be 
directed by Jim Wilson of Shreveport. 

2. Wade Heaton will direct Arthur Kopit's 
"Chamber Music." Heaton is from Baton 

3. "Happy Ending" by Douglas Turner 
Ward and directed by Lawrence Batiste of 
Natchitoches. Batiste was originally 
scheduled to direct "Day of Absence" also by- 
Ward. According to Batiste, "The play has 
been changed but not the actors." 

One other major production is planned for 
this semester; Archibald Mac Leish's "J. 
B." This Pulitzer Prize winner is the modern- 
ancient fable of "Job." The director of the 
production, Ray Schexnider, said auditions 
will be held Wednesday and Thursday from 3 
to 5 p.m. in the Little Theater. "J. B." will be 
produced on November 15-18 and will be 
NSU's entry in the Fifth Annual American 
College Theatre Festival. 

"In the Spring we will produce three 
plays," said Dr. Black, "William 
Shakespeare's 'Hamlet' and 'Rosencrantz 
and Guildenstern are Dead' by Tom Stop- 
pard will be first. They will play on February 
16 and 17 and February 19-20, alternating 
each night." 

"The third play for the Spring semester has 
not been decided on yet. However we do know 
it will be a musical - light and funny. Sort of a 

Student Union, said the pageant will be 
sponsored this year by the Student Union 
Governing Board. Wilson and graduate 
assistant Gary Pool are serving as con- 
sultants to the student planning committees. 

Nominations are being accepted from 
dormitory residents and members of 
organizations both on and off campus for the 
honor. The contest is open to all women 
students at NSU and any girl wishing to 
enter may do so by checking at the Student 
Union Information Office. The deadline for 
entries has been extended to Friday. 

More than 100 coeds will be nominated for 
the top beauty honor, and a briefing tea will 
be held for those nominated October 11. The 
first preliminary is scheduled for November 
11. At this time, all contestants will be judged 
on talent, poise and personality. 

Twenty semi-finalists will be selected 
during the preliminary judging, and these 
twenty will participate in the formal pageant, 
which has been set for December 6 at 8 p. m. 
in the Fine Arts Auditorium. 

Official Miss America preliminary rules 
will be followed for the pageant, which has as 
its theme "Winter, Spring Summer and Fall 
— Beauty Encompasses All! 

Elaine Rainey will relinquish the crown 
which she has worn for the past year. Several 
other visiting queens will be featured during 
the event. 

State Board Announces 
Approval Of Complex 

Last spring the Student Union Governing 
Board (SUGB) proposed a million dollar 
recreational complex for Northwestern. The 
proposal was put before the student body and 
was passed. Friday, Sept. 22, the total project 
was approved by the Louisiana State Board of 

Where do we go from here? "Student 
representatives are currently working with 
consultants on rules and regulations for the 
operation of the complex," said Jo Pease, 
president of SUGB. "They are working on the 
atmosphere, the quality of buildings in the 
surrounding environment and the for- 
mulation and finalization of what is to be 
included in the million dollar complex." 

The National Guard is working with NSU on 
site preparation. The site is situated across 
the new highway at the end of Chaplin's 
Lake. Among other things, the complex will 
include a swimming pool, golf course and an 

The student representatives compose a 
Research and Development Committee. This 
committee meets every Thursday, at 4 p. m., 
in the president's room of the Student Union. 
Any students having a question about the 
complex may write to Karen Richey, c-o 
SUGB, and answers will be published in the 

Current Sauce. Meetings of the committee 
are open to all students. 

Richey heads the committee and its 
members are Jack Damico, Carol Almond, 
Vivian Carriere, Brenda Fitzgerald, Debbie 
Hebert, Linda Jue, Lue Wiggins and Vickie 

Also on the committee are eight people

Of Sanity? 


A matter of vagueness cited in the student 
body constitution is being carried to the student 
superior court posing the question, "How you 
determine the majority of votes in an election 
involving several candidates running for the 
same office." 

If the decision falls in favor of the "clear 
majority", the problem of one person acquiring 
that large majority could cause a situation in 
which several run-off election s would be needed 
to enable a student tc acquire such a margin. And 
yet, the question is real and valid... and must be 

1 984 Anyone? 

In light of recent incidents, there has been 
discussion on ways to prevent intruders from 
gaining entrance to campus grounds. One such 
proposal has stimulated the imagination of 
several students and one known faculty member. 

Picture, if you will, a group ofperplexed council 
members gathered around a long conference 
table. Their purpose : to discuss the feasibility of 
erecting a fence along the outer edge of the 
campus in order to insure better protection of 
students and university facilities. At the moment 
they are in deep discussion involving the type of 
fence which would best suit this purpose. 

"We can't afford an electrified fence!" 

"The only other alternative we have is to in- 
stall barbed wire." 

"It will have to be at least ten feet high." 

"You have to consider our budget! Eight feet 
will certainly serve the purpose." 

"Do you really believe that will be enough to 
insure our university the protection it needs?" 

"Well, how about dogs? We could invest in a 
few trained German shepherds to patrol along 
the fence." 

"Our budget! Our Budget!" 

"How about getting the faculty involved? 
Have each faculty member agree to stand watch 
for a few hours each night." 

"Everyone keeps talking about student in- 
volvement. The SBA should be brought in. By 
patrolling together, this could promote better 
student-faculty relations." 

"Campus Security can man a lone entrance to 
the campus which will be blocked by a draw 
bridge-type gate. The top of the guard station 
can be equipped with a revolving machine gun 
assembly to insure capture of gate crashers!" 

"Our budget!" 

"Those patroling the fence will need protec- 

"Hand guns! Each faculty member will be 
issued hand guns. Nothing big... a small .22 pistol 
should do the trick." 

"An eight foot barbed wire fence patroled by 
armed faculty and student members and a 
manned revolving machine gun at the main 
entrance should take care of our problem." 

"Before we adjourn, we have one last question 
to consider. Which direction would you prefer to 
slant the barbed wire — inwards or outwards?" 

Student Claims 

One Gold Star 

Northwestern students are fortunate to have 
John Radcliffe as their dining hall manager. 
Seldom has there been one person who tried so 
diligently to give the student what he can. He is 
known for his discussions, with students who 
have complaints or questions, which have been 
known to last over an hour. He has also attended 
all SBA meetings and has worked in 
cooperation with the food service committee in 
an effort to provide every possible convenience 
to the students. A hardy congratulations Mr. 

Radical Takeover? 

It is now our legal right to vote. But it seems to 
some in this town an almost treacherousact by 
"the young radical element" of NSU. As a point 
of reference I offer the attitudes displayed by 
some townsmen when university students have 
attempted to register in Natchitoches. 

The reception of some Northwestern students 
by the persons in charge of the Natchitoches 
voters registration office does nothing to en- 
courage hope for even a state of peaceful co- 
existance between the two groups. 

The actions presented to the students by the 
registrars were described by the students as 
rude and obnoxious. Not a very pleasant way to 
be introduced to a community which profits 
from these students. These are incidents which 
only help to anger and build feelingsofdeep 
resentment and disrespect towards the town- 

Dear Editor, 

My how things get 
misrepresented! I would like 
to try and clarify my opinions 
as stated in my letter of the 19 
of September. Messrs. 
Fletcher and Herring were 
very vocal and emotional 
about my letter ; I believe they 
read more into it than 
was intended to be there. 

First of all and most im- 
portant, I believe that Messrs. 
Fletcher and Herring thought 
I had labled them extremists 
because I referred to 
McGovern's policies as ex- 
tremism. That was not my 
intention at all, and if my 
letter resulted in personal in- 
sult, I extend my apology. I 
did say McGovern's policies 
amounted to extremism. 
Never in the history of our 
nation has a major candidate 
for the Presidency run on a 
foreign policy of"begging". 
That is extreme. 

Secondly, a question about 
racism. This was my 
statement, "The point is that 
racial discrimination is 
wrong, regardless of which 
race is discriminated 
against." Mr. Fletcher, how 
do you interpret this 
statement to support an all- 
white cabinet? 

Thirdly, Mr. Fletcher said 
that I was "not for anything." 
This is not true. I am neither 
for McGovern , nor his policy 
of surrender, nor his policy of 
begging, norhis support of 
general amnesty, (i.e. - "I 
would plege, once this war is 
ended, a policy of general 
amnesty and forgiveness.." - 
McGovern Press Release, 
September 23, 1971 — "I favor 
granting general amnesty but 

not until after the war is over 
and the prisoners are retur- 
ned." New York Daily News, 
May 8, 1972. Who doesn't know 
his facts, Mr. Herring?) I am 
for defense spending to 
protect our nation, 
prosecution of draft dodgers, 
and less national 
bureaucracy, not more. I 
believe, as McGovern does, 
that every able-bodied man 
who wants work should be 
able to work, but I believe, as 
McGovern apparently doesn't 
that "when government takes 
from one man to bestow on 
another, it diminishes the 
incentive of the first, the in- 
tergrity of the second, and 
moral autonomy of both." I 
realize that I do not share 
these views with all students 
on campus; however, I believe 
in them just as strongly. And I 
am sure that Mr. 
Fletcher will still consider me 
"a tortured man", a racist, a 
bigot, a hate monger, a 
potential John Birch-er, et ad 
nausea. I don't remember 
discussing "little pinko 
communists" at all. Where did 
you get that, Mr. Fletcher? 

I do believe that Messrs. 
Fletcher and Herring are 
sincere in their efforts to 
improve our government. I 
also believe that they are 
sincerely wrong, as I'm sure 
they consider me. But I really 
did not expect that because I 
was so brash as to question 
their views (sic) that I would 
receive all of this 
emotionalism, rhetoric, and 
verbal abuse. I had hoped that 
at NSU we could exchange 
ideas without all of this.

Children Of The Tube 

My mother spent so much 
time at PTA meetings and 
other concerned parent 
organizations, that I grew up 
thinking Lucille Ball was my 

While Mom was taking 
courses in Doc Spock I and 
Joyce Brothers II, Lucy was 
there. After a tough day at 
public school I'd turn on with 
Lucy, my surrogate mother, 
who never let me down except 
once when a tube blew. 

It's had its toll. I went 
straight to the couch when 
Lucy and Desi got divorced. 
And I was a ward of CBS when 
they took her show off the air. 

Dr. Freudenfeldt and I had 
long sessions about it. 

"What comes to your mind 
when you think about your 

"Channel 5." 

"Did your mother spend 
much time with you?" 

"Half an hour a day, five 
times a week. Including re- 
runs." And it wasn't much 
different for the other kids on 
the block. Manny Wineland, 
whose mother spent her time 
selling door-to-door 
salve, chose a substitute 
mother whose show was taken 
off the air. Manny had a 
nervous breakdown at age 7. 
Imagine the trauma of having 
your mother cancelled after 13 

The whole neighborhood 
lived vicariously through TV. 
Mary Jo Maddock had a dog 
named Lassie. Alex Tubline 
had a horse named Fury. 
Pamela Gibson had an uncle 
named Ed who took her to the 
circus every Sunday night. 
She recently went into 
mourning when they cancelled 
him after 20 years. 

We used to get lost in space 
and say Howdy to Doody. We 
' had a father who knew best, 
had a maid named Hazel and 
took all of our pediatric 
problems to the doctor of our 
choice - Ben Casey or James 
Kildare. Where are they now? 

We watched hundreds of 
mothers - not unlike our own, 
real or televised - pour out 
their breaking hearts to all of 
the USA on Queen For A Day. 
We'd comb out with Kooky, 
the pre-Beatle sex-symbol 
with hair. We'd watch 
December Bride, the grand- 
mother of us all with lavender 
hair. And we'd cha cha and 
rhumba into the hearts of 
America right along with 
Katherine and Arthur 
Murray's magic steps. We 
learned to rebel " "Mother

"I just can't get used to-" —*

that she was married to Dick

said recently. "The chutzpat"

then flaunt it on Saturday

after Mary signs off. I shal 
never forgive him." 

But my heart still belongs to 
Lucy. I can't relate in any 
meaningful way to the new, 
single, independent Lucy with 
two grown kids - maybe it's 
sibling rivalry - but I wouldn't 
miss the reruns of fhe old Lucy 
show for a visit home. 
Everyday at 3:15, I hop 
downtown to the department 
store of my choice and tell the 
salesman that I'm interested 
in buying a TV. And for thirty 
minutes it's back to the womb 
via a TV set. 

But I've run into problems, 
Recently I encountered a kid, 
my own age, waiting in ap- 
pliances for Donna Reed to 
begin — at the same time 
Lucy was to begin. 

"Hey, Hey," I said. "Let's 
handle this like mature adults. I 
My Lucy is better than your 
Donna. Nahhh!" 

"Oh yeah? Well at least 
Donna never got divorced." 

"No . Just cancelled." 

He pulled the plug out of the 
TV set and ran off. "I'm gonna 
tell the salesman on you," h< 
jeered. And the salesman 
came over to mediate and 
plug the set back in. 

Some people just can't seem 
to cut the cord.

indicated that tney were not 
being treated equal to the 
Whites. Galloway com- 
mented, "I don't know if this is 
the case because some Blacks 
may have a closed mind as do 
many whites. It can be a two- 
way proposition". 

Dr. Galloway said that it 
was determined that there is 
a need for the council because 
of certain problems between 
the Blacks andWhites here at 
NSU. "The committee", he 
said," will try to act as a 
'preventive medicine' against 
any explosive racial con- 
flicts." Galloway stressed 
that there are no major 
problems at NSU right now 
and that there have been no 
specific incidents to cause 
the formation of the council. 
He did say, however, that he 
wanted to see that the students 
have the same opportunites 
and that a better un-

Production Set 

The Paul Taylor Dance 
Company, a world famous 
modern dance company, is in 
residence here at NSU this 
week with a production 
scheduled for Thursday at 8 
p. m. in the Fine Arts 

Taylor has been acclaimed 
by Life magazine as "a dancer 
of singular eloquence... a 
choreographer of first 
quality" and was named 
"Dancer of the Year" by 
London's Dance and Dancer 
magazine in 1965. 

The Taylor Company has 
made 17 foreign tours, seven 
of which were sponsored by 
the U. S. State Department. 
They were the first modern 
dance company to appear at 
Dame Margot Fonteyn's 
Royal Gala matinee in Lon- 
don. During the course of the 
1968 European tour the 
Company stopped in 
Copenhagen for Taylor to 
teach his dance Aureole to the 
Royal Danish Ballet. 

This presentation is one of 
four scheduled for NSU this 
year, sponsored by the 
National Endowment of Arts, 
the Natchitoches Area Action 
Assn., the Louisiana Council 
of Music and Performing Arts, 
and the Artist Series. 

Internationally recognized 

Taylor, who has twice 
received the Guggenhiem 
Fellowship for Choreography, 
was born in Pennsylvania and 
grew up around Washington, 
D. C. He attended Syracuse 
University to major in 
painting but left to study 
dance in New York City. 

The Paul Taylor Dance 
Company, internationally 
recognized for their ease and 
grace, will perform four 
dances, which are "Insect and 
Heroes, " "Big Bertha," 
"Three Epitaphs," and 
"Guests of May." 

"Insects and Heroes" was 
first performed by the Taylor 
dancers in 1961. The language 
of this dance is based more on 
lineaur shape than gestual 
expression. Its subject con- 
cerns the conflicting opposite 
within each of us, and is 
presented as an elaboration of 
this theme rather than a 

Deborah Jowitt of The 
Village Voice wrote: "Insects 
and Heroes" was the first 
dance on the first program of 
Paul Taylor choreography 
that I ever saw; it astonished 
and impressed me then, and it 
still does ..." 

"Big Bertha" 

"Big Bertha," which was 
made possible by a grant from 
the National Endowment for 
the Arts and through the 
cooperation of the St. Louis 
Melody Museum whose 
collection of band machines 
made this dance a reality 
rather than a dream, has been 
called by Dorothy Samachson 
of the Chicago Daily News as 
"a thrilling theater piece, and 
a bitter picture of the disin- 
tergration of all humanity in 
one family .. If you miss 'Big 
Bertha,' youll be sorry. She's 
an experience.." 

"Three Epitaphs" first 
performed in 1956, is danced to 
American folk music. The 
music was first played by 
country brass bands at 
weddings and funerals in 

Alabama, Louisiana and 

"Three Epitaphs' is surely 
one of the funniest dances 
conceived," wrote Clive 
Barnes of the New York 

One writer wrote, "The 
evening opened with 'Guests 
of May,' scintillatingly 
executed by the Paul Taylor 
Company. It's that daring." 

Tickets for this con- 
temporary dance concert and 
future Artist Series per- 
formances will be on sale at 
the door, according to Dr. 
Colleen Nelken, chairman of 
the Artist Series Committee. 

Students will be admitted 
with I. D.'s. 

There are two 
scheduled placement 
interviews for this 
coming week. The 
Louisiana State Civil 
Service will be in 
Room 312 of the 
Student Union 
Building this 
Thursday, Oct. 5, to

On Friday, Oct. 6,

Twenty-five freshman and 
sophomore ROTC cadets 
under the supervision of 
Captain Campbell, Captain 
Sullivan and Sergeant Rogers, 
participated in their first 
tactical training problem. 

The cadets were taught the 
fundamentals of breaching 
mine fields and barbwire 
positions, proper stream and 
road crossing procedure, 
assulting fortified positions, 
proper reaction to artillery 
fire and the finding of snipers. 

The problem took five hours 
in the muggy morning and 
rainy afternoon, with the 
cadets dressed in full battle 
gear, including blank ammo. 
All of this was done while they 
were under simulated small 
arms and artillery fire from 
members of the advanced 
ROTC corps, who were 
strategically placed to harass 


them. The corps plans about 
four of these outings a year.

The ABC's of 


Nutritional Products. 

Natural versus synthetic vitamins. 

When you buy vitamins, you have a 
choice. You can take synthetic ones. Or natural 
ones. What is the difference.' 

Natural vitamins come from natural 
foods. Synthetics are made in laboratories. 

At Health-Rite, we believe nature knows 
more about providing for the body's needs than 
even the best chemists do. 

Vitamin A. 

A natural form of A, 
obtained from pure fish oil. 
For normal functioning of skin 
cells, eyes, and soft tissues of the 
body. Available in 25,000 and 
50,000 U.S. P. unit capsules. 

Vitamin C. 

Helps bones, teeth, and 
blood vessels stay healthy. Health- 
Rite Rose Hips Vitamin C contains 
the fruit of European rose bushes, 
_f with traces of acerola cherry. These 

two fruits are among the richest natural sources of 
C. Available in 100, 250, and 500 milligram 
strength tablets. 

Dextrose Quick Energy Wafers. 

A pleasant-tasting water that supplies an 
easily absorbed form ot sugar. Many athletes 
depend on dextrose tor quick energy. 

Digestive Enzymes. 

,.* Healthy enzymatic action 

in our digestive tract is conducive 
r '.' to a properly functioning stomach, 

' .. Enzymes assist in breaking 
**3&U»- foodstuffs down into "building 
blocks" which the body can absorb more readily. 
Health-Rite makes its Digestive Enzymes to aid 
this process. 

Vitamin E. 

Originally called "the 
antisterilitv factor!' because ot its 
suspected involvement in 
reproductive functions. Health- 
Rite's Vitamin E contains mixed 
tocopherols deriv ed from natural vegetable oils. 
Thev are available in 100. 200. 400. and 600 
International Unit capsules. An emulsified form 
comes in 100 and 200 l.U. capsules. Two prominent 
Canadian brothers, Drs. Evan and Wilfrid Shute. 
have reported the use ot Vitamin E in treating 
over W000 cardiovascular patients. Their 
conclusion is that it is helptul in both the treatment 
and the prevention of heart disease. However, this 
approach has not vet generally been adopted bv 
the medical protession.

*Hot Sauce Questions * 

The new fountain in front of the library 
surely cost in the thousands. Why isn't it 
ever turned on for us to enjoy? 

So much money was spent on the fountain that 
there isn't enough to pay for the water bill. No, 
seriously, Hot Sauce talked to Mr. MacKenzie, 
librarian, and was told that the lights to 
illuminate it at night haven't arrived yet and there 
are still some minor malfunctions that have to be 
corrected. As a result, it might be another month 
before it is finished. 

What is St. Denis going to be used for 

Nothing, at the present time. 

Why were the students not notified 
the day before registration that in- 
surance money can be refunded? Why 
should we have to pay it in the first 

Dr. Richard Galloway, vice president of student 
affairs, said that it is written into the contract that 
all insurance fees must be included in the fee sheet 
because if it was done on an optional basis it would 
slow the registration pocess up. (We certainly do 
not want that to happen , do we?) He also said 
that the primium rates are cheaper this way. 

Why isn't there a diet line in the 

John Radcliffe, food services director, said 
that he would be happy to set up a diet line in the 
cafeterias if enough people would sign up to eat in 
one. He suggests that you contact him if you are

Symphony Offers Variety 
In Concert Season Dates 

Robert Price, newly 
appointed conductor of the 
Symphony Orchestra, has 
announced performance dates 
for the upcoming year. 

On October 26-27 the or- 
chestra will play for the Opera 
Workshop which is presented 
annually by the Music 
Department. Due to the small 
number of instruments 
needed, the entire orchestra 
will not participate in 
this program. 

This will be followed up by a 
Children's Concert on 
November 3, at 1 p.m.,in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium. The 
concert is held for the local 
elementary and junior high 

November 10, marks the 
beginning of the official 
concert season. 

The program features a 
piece entitled "Louisiana 
Story" by Virgil Thomson 
which weaves together 
several Cajun folk songs. 
"Rhapsody on the Theme of 
Paganini" for solo piano and 
orchestra by Rachmaninoff, 
will be another highlight of 
this opening concert. 

The remainder of the 
concert season falls in the

spring semester when the 
orchestra will present two 
more season concerts on 
March 2 and May 6, as well as 
the Opera-Theatre-in -the- 

According to Price, the 
Symphony Orchestra was 
organized seven years ago by 
Mrs. Frank Roberson, who 
felt there was a definite need 
for a commuity orchestra. 
Prior to this time the or- 
chestra was affiliated only 
with the college and was 
known as the Northwestern 

Mrs. Roberson formed the 
Symphony Society to serve as 
sponsor for the orchestra. The 
Symphony Society was 
responsible for accumulating 
funds and getting publicity. 

Each year the Symphony 
Society has a drive to collect 
money for the orchestra fund. 
The drive is usually held in 
August or September. They 
aim for a budget of $10-$15,000 
which is used for the orchestra 
and any social functions the 
Symphony Society sponsors. 

There are currently 56 
musicians in the orchestra. 
"Students make up the main 

core," said Price. "I'd say we 
have around 30 students." 
Faculty members help out by 
playing without any kind of 
pay. Several local citizens 
also play in the orchestra. 

Price received his Master's 
Degree from the University of 
Arkansas in 1963. He then 
taught at Youree Drive Jr. 
High in Shreveport. From 
1965-69, he served in the Air 
Force. During this time he 
was stationed in Washington, 
D. C. - where he played violin 
in the Air Force Symphony 
Orchestra. While in the or- 
chestra, Price had the op- 
portunity to play at the White 
House. He has played for the 
past five Presidents. 

Being stationed in 
Washington ,D. C . j allowed 
Price enough spare time to 
complete his course work on 
his doctor's degree at 
Catholic University. He is 
presently working on his 
paper and expects to have his 
degree by next summer. 

Price came to Northwestern 
in 1969 and served for two years 
as concert master of the or- 
chestra before taking over the 
duties of conductor this year.

Ex-Cons Urge Prison Reform 

Every NSU Student has a Caplan's 
Charge Account. ..Use yours today! 


Next to Broadmoor Shopping Center 

Only a relatively small 
portion of the American public 
ever come in direct contact 
with this country's penal 
system. Whether this minority 
consists of the individuals 
actually confined to prisons, 
the administrative depart- 
ments involved in penitentiary 
operation, or the handful of 
citizens knowledgeable of the 
inner-workings of the in- 
stitutions, the bulk of 
Americans remain 
unenlightened of the horrors 
of prison life. 

John Garry Pettinger, 
Larry Morgan and Steve 
Catalano, three actors in the 
four-member cast of "The 
Cage," know what prison is 
like. They have all served 
"time" - or to use the stigma- 
bearing synonym - they are 

The explosive prison drama, 
revealing the complex nature 
of the brutality existing in 
prisons as well as the need for 
more adequate reform 
measures, was performed 
here last week. Before the 
production, "The Cage" cast 
spoke of their personal ex-

periences in prison and their 
attitudes toward punitive 

"Going to prison is like 
being placed in another 
society," said Pettinger, who 
served more than three years 
for the sale of an ounce of 

"I was very confused at 
first. I had come from a lower 
middle class background and 
the prison environment was 
totally different from what I 
had been accustomed to," he 

Pettinger's main contention 
was that prisons were serving 
more as dehumanizing cen- 
ters instead of rehabilitation 
agents. He emphasized the 
fact that the prison system 
was failing to prevent further 
incidence of crime. 

"A prisoner, I don't care if 
he's Charles Manson, needs to 
be treated like a human 
being," Pettinger continued. 
"The attitude of the prison 
officials seems to be giving a 
priority to punishment. 

"If prisons were serving 
society, three out of four in- 
mates would not return. 
Charles Manson was a product 
of the institutional set-up," he 

Charles Manson, convicted 
murderer in the sensational 
1969 Sharon Tate multiple 
slayings, is currently 
awaiting appeal in a 
California prison. 

As a solution to the 
inadequacies apparent in the 
nation's penal code, Pettinger 
expressed a need for a 
seperation of crimes and a 
community based prison 

Larry Morgan, admitting 
that he had been in and out of 
corrective institutions since 
he was nine years old, agreed 
that the mental punishment 
inflicted upon confined 
prisoners was far beyond the 
normal bounds of corrective 

"You can take the punish- 
ment," he claimed. "But when 
you're stripped of your in- 
centive, of your individuality 
and even your name, you 
become a little blob that 
responds to a bell." 

Morgan found that while the 
prison situation ideally is 
intended to minimize social 
problems, the confined at- 
mosphere accentuates 
society's ills. "Both racism 
and ethnic differences are 
greatly intensified in prison, 
which creates hostility among 
the inmates," he said. 

Stressing the internal 

climate of the prison 
establishment as the breeding 
ground for future acts of 
violence, Moran stated that to 
survive in prison depends 
on the individuals criminal 
stamina. He added that the 
tension among convicts, often 
aggravated by the prison 
officials, results in an in- 
tensifying feeling of bit- 

"There's a definite class 
structure in prison based on 
physical capabilities-how 
quick and how good you can 
kill someone. The crime, too, 
has some bearing on the social 
status. Murder, kidnapping, 
and big-money crimes carry 
the most influence in the 
prison set-up." Morgan 

Convicted of assaulting a 
federal officer and sentenced 
to two years in the stockade at 
Fort Bragg, N.C, Steve 
Catalano found upon his 
release from prison that the 
fate of an ex-con was not 
typically one of easy- 
acceptance by the general 

"I lie. I've been lying all my 
life. People just don't want the 
truth, Catalano confessed. 
"The average ex-con does 
runintoa lot of trouble. He can 
never get back to being a 100 
percent citizen." 

Catalano pointed to the 
American judicial system as a 
major deterrent to the 
criminal's rehabilitation. 
Saying that those convicted 
usually constitute the lower 
class minority groups, he 
added that the un- 
derpriviledged "can not af- 
ford to buy justice." 

The three all agree that the 
major need in prison reform is 
for a realization on the part of 
the people that the penal 
system is not efficiently ac- 
complishing its intended aim. 
"The great mass of people are 
unaware of what goes on in 
prison. If they knew the 
reality of the situation, they 
would do something." Pet- 
tinger said. 

One concern shared by the 
three ex-con actors is that 
society itseF has in some way 
degenerated to the point 
where the plight of the im- 
prisoned criminal is of secon- 
dary concern. "I think people 
have lost the ability to gei into 
each other and understand 
other's problems^" Pettinger 
concluded, with the others 
nodding approval 

Through "The Cage" the 
three actors are hoping to 
prove that assumption false.

APGOTE feels that exercise 
will alleviate four of the five

also believe that daily exer-

probably the best way to

compiled by APGOTE show 
that if you lower the heart rate 
by five beats per minute, you 
can save your heart 7,200 
beats per day, 50,000 beats per 
week; 2,620,800 beats per

Bill Withers: Soul 
And Rhythm Hits 

■. Robei 
dept. the 

patien Tomorrow night at Prather Coliseum Bill 
cise. Tj Withers will appear in concert. The doors will 
an elej open at 7 p. m., and the concert will begin at 8 
ven whi! p. m. 

nputerid Withers has been described as a man with 
n oxygj the wit of Bill Cosby and the power of James 
Brown. His music consists of "tender 
soul ballads and moving rhythm numbers." 
"Use Me", his current hit has just reached 
the number eight spot on the Billboard Top 
100 Chart. He achieved his first "Gold " 
record for "Ain't No Sunshine," one of his 
ay, or ( own compositions. 

There ai a native of Fork Slab, Va., the 34 yeao-old 
singer took the long way around before 
SSS&i; breaking into the business. "I had no show 
* : * : ' : * : ' :w fl business background whatever," says 
Withers, "except that my mother didn't have 
money for baby sitters so she sent me to the 
movies every day. I remember those movies 
with Gene KeUy and Frank Sinatra. They 
were always in the Navy,, always laughing 
and having a good time;" So Withers joined 
the Navy.- . 
j After nine years of the service,' Withers 
decided that he wanted to be a singer. "I just 
saved my money and read the back of album 
oovers to find out who could play, then I got a 
license from the musicians' union so I could 
hire a few." says Withers. It wasn't until two 
years later that, with the help of Booker T. 
Jones and Sussex Records, that Withers 
recorded his first hit, "Ain't No Sunshine". 

While waiting for the record to be released 
Withers was building toilets for the 747 Air- 
IE J craft. He had been laid off his job and was 
[C | about to take a job as a janitor when the 
)| I record began to "happen". 

1 In his album "Just As I Am", Withers has 
used subjects like his grandmother, suicide, 

illegitimacy and Harlem to bring forth his 
sentimental mood and memory. Withers 
now thinks of himself primarily as a writer. 
He turned to writing because he was tired of 
the "I love you so, I'll never let you go" type 
of songs. He wanted to deal with "a more 
universal life form". 

Withers has appeared on the Dick Cavett 
Show, recently.

Candidates Qualify; 
Court Refuses Trial 

Nine recently elected class 
senators have officially begun their 
duties. Senators elected on the first 
ballot two weeks ago are Adrian 
Strother, graduate; Nina Martin, 
senior; Linda Fulgham, junior; 
Rodney Harrington,sophomoreand 
H. Linsey Torbett, freshman. 

Elected after run-off campaigns 
were Eddie Hebert, senior; Tommy 
Damico, junior; Robbie Fowlkes, 
sophomore; and Tenney Branch. 
First ballot candidates entered 
office after a controversy concerning 
the determination of a majority. 

Election of first ballot winners 
was contested by three students, 
especially concerning the validation 
of junior senator Fulgham. The 
question concerned the method 
determining the majority by total 
votes cast divided by half plus one or 
the number of students voting 
divided by half plus one. (The total 
votes cast would be double the 
number of students as each student 
cast two votes for two available 

The matter went before the 
student superior court last Monday 
night. The court decided the 
plaintiffs had no grounds for trial. 
(The plaintiffs were contesting that 
a majority was half plus one of the 
total votes cast.) The court based its 
decision upon the student con- 
stitution which gave the defendants, 
the Elections Board, the right to 

'Endgame 9 

To Begin 

By R. Manning Jr. 

"Endgame" by Samuel Beckett is one of 
the three plays to open here at NSU tomorrow 
night, and will be directed by Jim Wilson, a 
senior speech major from Shreveport. 
Wilson, who says he's "...a lousy actor," is 
mostly interested in writing and directing 
plays and has directed four of them in the 
Natchitoches area in the past year. 

Wilson is a graduate of Fair Park High 
School who first entered Northwestern as a 
psychology major but switched to speech. He 
got into theater work four or five years ago at 
the Shreveport Little Theatre. 

Along with his roommate, Richard Wad- 
sack, he has written two children's plays, one 
of which they hope to take on a tour of high 
schools and junior highs. 

About "Endgame," Wilson says, "It's the 
most lamentable play I've ever read. You just 
want to go off and die. Although it is 
distressing, each time I read it, I can't help 
but get enthused about directing it. I think 
you can get so enthused . you forget who 
you are. I hope I get that way." 

Finding that his background in psychology 
has helped him in the development of his 
directorial skill, Wilson expressed a belief 
that the behavior of individuals needs a firm 
understanding to adequately be portrayed on 
the stage. 

"Most of it (acting) is the psychological 
behavior of the characters and sometimes 
there's interplay between characters who 
may be the opposite of each other," he said. 

"Endgame," along with 'Chamber Music" 
and "Happy Ending," opens tomorrow night 
in the Little T.eatre with curtain time set for 
7:30 p.m. All three plays will run each night 
for four nights and close on Saturday 14. 
Both season and general admission tickets 
are on sale now at the box office in the Little 
Theatre. Reservations can be made by going 
by the box office or calling 357-4179. NSU 
students' admission is free with I.D. cards. 

Positions Open 

Freshmen NSU students who have had 
previous experience on a yearbook staff and 
who are interested in working with the 
POTPOURRI staff this year should apply 
immediately for a position in the ap 
prenticeship program- 

Deadline for applications is October 11. 
Applications should be made with the POT- 
POURRI adviser, Ezra Adams, Rm. 300, 

The editor noted that there is no 
Photographer position open on the staff. 

determine a majority of votes. The 
court quoted Article V, Section 4, 
Clause 3, in deciding against a trail, 
"Voting machines shall be used, if 
available; if voting machines are 
unavailable, election arrangements 
shall be made by the Elections 

Elections Board representatives, 
Cheryl Reese, AWS president; and 
Terry Colburn AMS president; 
conceded that clarification of the 
definition of a majority was needed. 
For future class elections they plan 
to use Louisiana law in determining 
that a majority will be half the 
number of total votes cast divided 

Due to Extension Programs 

again by number of positions 
available plus one. If under this 
method more than two receive a 
majority for two offices, selection 
will be made on the highest number 
of votes received. Dane Hine, 
representing the plaintiffs, used 

Webster's dictionary in defining a 
majority of votes and contended 
Louisiana law should not enter into 
determination of the student con- 
stitution of Northwestern. 

After the court's decision, 
senators validated after the first 
ballot remained unchanged and no 
changes were made on the run-off 
ballot used last Wednesday. 

Enrollment Up 

By Ronald Sanchez 

Enrollment figures released recently from 
the office of Registrar Walter P. Ledet show a 
slight increase from last year's totals. This 
increase, due primarily to the university's 
establishment of new extension programs at 
Ft. Polk and England Air Force Base, reflects 
the growing concern of north Louisiana 
university administrators regarding the 
potential effects of LSU in Shreveport as a 
major competitor for students. The 
Shreveport branch of the LSU system will 
obtain four-year status in the fall of 1973. 

Though the establishment of LSU-S as a 
degree-granting institution will undoubtedly 
have directly proportional effects on the 
Northwestern enrollment, the administration 
is not unduly alarmed for the future existence 
or wonnwestern. Ttils year's total 
enrollment, including full and part time 
students in both the graduate and un- 
dergraduate schools, is 6,384, an increase of 
116 over the 1971 figures. 

Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, president of NSU, 
said that the entrance of LSU-S as a four-year 
institution of higher learning "will have an 
effect on enrollment", but "it is an actuality 
that we must accept," Dr. Kilpatrick added 
that out of 2,200 students now attending LSU- 
S, at least 800 would have chosen NSU had a 
state-supported school in the Shreveport 
metropolitan area not been available. 

Plans have already been instituted to 
stimulate interest in high school students in 
the surrounding parishes and a greater effort 
is being made to recruit south Louisiana 
students. Dr. Kilpatrick also listed academic 
areas of improvement to further generate 
Northwestern appeal. 

"We have initiated several associate 
degrees to attract those students who wish to 
get out of school earlier and start earning a 
living. We have probably more associate 
degrees offered than any university in the 
state," he said. 

Claiming that Northwestern would in all 
probability be able to maintain its present 
enrollment, Dr. Kilpatrick stated that 
university enrollment nationally is on the 
decline. Factors influencing this wide-spread 
decrease in college students, he said, were the 
smaller numbers of high school graduates 
available, the changes in the draft laws which 
no longer compel eligible young men to enter 
college to avoid induction, and the financial 
burden represented in a college education. 

Dr. Kilpatrick added that a sharp decline in 
student enrollment , while not anticipated at 
this time, could necessitate a reduction in 
faculty members. A budget cut, he claimed 
would be unlikely because "Northwestern 
already receives the lowest percentage of 
formal implementation of any public in- 
stitution in the State." The financial sources 
most directly affected, in Dr. Kilpatrick's 
estimation, would be the amount of self- 
generated funds and the income from student 

Vice President of Student Affairs Richard 
H. Galloway expressed an opinion that the 
leveling-off of Northwestern 's enrollment 
could be a blessing in disguise. Calling for an 
end to what he termed the "college numbers 
game ,"Dr. Galloway said, "I think we should 
realize that we must do the best job with the 
students we already have to create a living- 
learning center. We need to become more 
sensitive to students as individual rather than 
one of a large number." 

Dr. Galloway said that the family ties 
inherent in the traditional choice of Nor- 
thwestern, the separation from the large city 
atmosphere which many students find 
desirable, and the student body spreading a 
public relations attitude all aid in selling 
Northwestern to potential high school 
graduates. He also added the fact that Nor- 
thwestern is not primarily a commuter 
school, which means added benefits for the 

Dean of Basic Studies Bennie G. Barron, 
whose freshman class of 2,249 constitutes the 
largest single faction on campus, feels that 
the effect of LSU-S upon Northwestern 
enrollment will come upon construction of 
dormitory facilities at the Shreveport com- 
plex. At present, he does not foresee any 
drastic drop in entering freshman into the 
university and views the live-in atmosphere 
of the school one of the greatest assets. 

Although the freshmen seem to prefer the 
College of Education, Dr. Barron found no 
discernible trend in academic areas for 
choosing Northwestern over its rivals. 
"Freshmen choose majors they preceive to 
be good career opportunities," he said. 

Dean Barron added that he felt Nor- 
thwestern has "enough academic appeal to 
attract students in the future." He also said 
Northwestern would continue "to attract the 
same quality of students as in the past." 

Committee Head Explains 
Book Theft Punishment 

As a result of cases presented before the 
Discipline Committee, a clarification of the 
definition of stolen books appears necessary. 
No matter what a student's personal in- 
terpretation of theft is, the committee must 
act upon a case of theft as defined by the Code 
of Conduct for NSU. 

According to Floyd Copell, a member of the 
Discipline Committee, some students who 
feel theft is not picking up books forgotten by 
another student, are in fact in possession of 
stolen property. Theft also includes such 
related instances as claiming books whose 
ownership is unknown and attempting to 
resell books after failing to contact the listed 

If books are found whose ownership is in 
doubt, they should be turned in immediately 
to the class instructor, department head, 
bookstore or such officials. If books are lost, 
they should be reported as such immediately 
to the bookstore. Students should be ex- 
tremely careful when a friend asks them to 
sell a book for him. Each person should do his 
own transactions and the fear of being caught 
in a theft will be reduced. 

The Discipline Committee hears cases 
referred to it through the workings of the due 
process system of Northwestern or on the 
basis of an appeal. Violations involving theft 
can result in suspension from this university, 
as decided by the committee. 

NSU has devised a method of listing books a 
student returns. The receipt signed upon 
resale of all books is called a refund rental 
receipt. This aids in determining students in 
possession of stolen property. Off campus 
bookstores are working in cooperation with 
the campus bookstore in this matter by listing 
all returned books and who returned them. 

Court Selection 

Brenda Fitzgerald, a sophomore, was 
elected queen of the State Fair Court. Others 
serving on the court are Margaret Zulich, 
Katie Van Asselberg, Jo Ann Sullivan, Susie 
Hines, Lissa McCaleb, Anjie Jones, Mary C. 
Bounds and Kathy Hughes. 

P age 2 THE CURRENT SAUCE, Tuesday, October 10, 1972 

This Side 

Of Sanity? 

By Niva Chav ez 

Several cases in the past few weeks have 
brought the vagueness in the Student Body Con- 
stitution to the attention of students. The student 
Superior Court was called upon to decide one 
such case in conjunction with student elections. 
According to the constitution the Elections Board 
is completely in charge of handling ballot elec- 
tions. No guidelines have been set up to determine 
how a majority is to be determined. Other 
seemingly trivial details are also left to the 
discretion of the Elections board. The danger here 
is that the outcome of an election could fall into 
the hands of a select group of students. Written 
guidelines are needed to prevent this. 

Two other committees functioning under vague 
guidelines are the publications committee and the 
student finance committee. In the Article VII, 
Section 2, Clause 2, of the constitution, the 
student finance committee is required to "review, 
accept, or reject with recommendations of the 
various proposed budgets from organizations 
receiving student fees." This appears to give the 
finance committee the final word in accepting or 
rejecting these budgets. At the last meeting of this 
committee several committee members were 
confused as to the extent of their power as a 

-Frank Williams in the Detroit Free Press 

State of the Union 

By Jo Pease 

The publications committee, in charge of 
selecting editors and business managers for the 
Potpourri and the Current Sauce, is also under 
vague guidelines as far as the constitution im- 

In Article X, Section 2, the constitution states 
that "the editor and staff of the newspaper in 
cooperation with the student publications 
committee shall also determine editorial policy 
and content of the Current Sauce." Does this take 
place before, during, or after publication? 

In Section 3, Clause 4, and in Section 9, Clause 4 
of the constitution it is stated that the editors 
shall submit "the names of the proposed business 
manager and other more important staff mem- 
bers." How are the editors to interpret "other 
more important staff members?" There are 
several to choose from. 

Thereareother questions which could be raised. 
Many are questions of interpretation, perhaps, but 
they are areas which need the guidance of written 
clarification. This could be done through amend- 
ments to the constitution or by setting rules for 
each committee. Only through clarification can 
we avoid quarrels over technicalities or cases of 
interpretation. The gradual loss of student faith in 
their constitution is also at stake. 

Last Sunday the Student 
Union Governing Board in- 
troduced a new kind of en- 
tertainment to the student 
body- the outdoor concert. 
The Outdoor Concert has been 
talked about before, but never 
materialized. The Social 
Activities Committee of the 
Union Board wanted to make 
available to the students of 
NSU a type of entertainment 
that has not been available to 
them in the past on this 
campus. Several other 
colleges and universities 
throughout Louisiana have 
successfully staged outdoor 
performances. Through 
detailed outlines and con- 
siderable preliminary plan- 
ning, the project became a 
reality for Northwestern 

Hopefully in the future, the 
Concert can be repeated-that 
is, if the students so desire. 
That's an important point. 
Voice you opinion-if you liked 

or disliked the program, let us 
know. The Union Board 
constantly looks for new ideas 
in programming. When we try 
an idea, we like to hear 
student response, WelL.what 
did you think about it? Would 
you like to have another Out 
door Festival? Did you like 
Ted Nugent and the Am boy 
Dukes ... t h e War- 
babies. . .Katmandu. .Johnny 
Richardson? How about 
another show for spring? 

More entertainment, that is 
the second presentation of 
Showcase 72, is scheduled for 
tomorrow night. Appearing in 
concert will be soul singer Bill 
Withers. Withers has been 
racking up the top hits, and 
from all National En- 
tertainment Conference 
reports has rated high in 
concert performance. In line 
for the third show in the en- 
tertainment series is the 
Christmas Lights Showcase, 
with the act to be released at a 
future date. 

Student Praises 
Union Board 

Press Freedom, 
A Public Freedom 

By Albert Blank 
Philadelphia (Pa.) Evening 
and Sunday Bulletin 

The week of October 8 to 14 is 
being observed as Newspaper 
Week in communities 
throughout the nation. Anyone 
who reflects on the role of 
modern newspapers in today's 
society is reminded anew how 
wise were those men who 
wrote into the First Amend- 
ment to the U. S. Constitution 
the guarantee of a free press. 

Thomas Jefferson once said 
he would prefer to live in a 
country with newspapers but 
with a government rather 
than a country with a 
government but no 

"No experiment can be 
more interesting than what we 
are now trying," he wrote on 
another occasion, " and which 
we trust will end in 
establishing the fact that man 
may be governed by reason 
and truth. Our first object, 
therefore, should be to leave 
open to him all the avenues of 

"How do you go about giving 
the citizen a clear shot down 
the avenue of truth? 

"The most effectual 
(method) hitherto found," 
said Jefferson, "is freedom of 
the press." It still is. 

Newspapermen throughout 1 
the English-speaking world, 
are well aware of Edmund 
Burke, who first referred to' 
them as the Fourth Estate, 200 
years ago in the British House 
of Commons. 

"In this Parliament," said 
Burke, "are three estates: 
The Lords Spiritual, the Lords 
Temporal and the Commons. 
But, in the Reporter's Gallery, 
yonder sits a Fourth Estate, 
more important by far than 

"What then remains?," he 
asked Parliament. "Only the 
Press, which no influence, no 

power, no minister, no 
government, which nothing 
but the depravity or 
corruption of a jury can ever 
destroy. It will be the nation's 
most awful moment, it will be 
the first grasp of tyranny, and 
how pregnant is the example. 
What remains if the public 
press is extinguished, the 
people enslaved, and the 
prince undone?" 

"As an advocate of society, 
of peace and of liberty, I 
conjure you to guard the 
liberty of the press, the great 
sentinel of the state, the grand 
detector of public imposture. 
Guard it and cherish it, 
because whenever it ceases to 
flourish, there will die with it 
the liberty of the people and 
the security of the Crown." 

To benefit from a good 
press, the public should 
zealously defend press 
freedom, a public possession 
and right, and in many ways 
the public's stoutest weapon. 

To deserve its freedom, the 
press should strive to be full, 
fair and factual. But a free 
people does not leave it to the 
government to decide what is 
full, fair and factual. 

The greatest strength of a 
free press is not points of 
similarity, but in points of 
difference. In the production 
of news every step involves 
the conscious intervention of 
some news-gatherer, and two 
accounts of the same event 
will never be the same. 

The threat to the liberties of 
the individual is always 
possible. External vigilance 
on the part of the public is 
essential, and that is why once 
a year Newspaper Week seeks 
to focus attention on Freedom 
of Expression— a priceless 
heritage bought with blood 
and tears over many years. 

Dear Ms. Editor, 

Last summer I wrote a 
derogatory letter ad- 
monishing the talent 
presentations sponsored by 
the Student Union Governing 
Board. In the past I have 
found the SUGB's choices of 
entertainment not to be of the 
highest calibre or toward the 
general interests of the 
student body. But I feel 
compelled, after the Seals & 
Crofts concert and par- 
ticularly the Ted Nugent and 
the Amboy Dukes concert 
Sunday afternoon, to com- 
mend the Union officers who 
have improved entertainment 
on campus. 

Never before have I wit- 
nessed, in my three years here 
at NSU a more responsive 
mood generated by a Nor- 
thwestern audience than at 
the rock concert. The crowd, 
many who never participate 
in the usual Union concerts, 
found the skill and 
showmanship of the musical 
group to be finally satisfying 
their student fees. 

Special recognition needs to 
be given to John Richardson 
and Eddie McFarlin, two 
Union Board members 
responsible for negotiating the 
Ted Nugent concert. Finally, 
it seems, the SUGB is con- 
centrating on bringing a 
higher quality of en- 
tertainment to the NSU 
campus while at the same 
time interesting the student 
body in Union activities. 

Unfortunately the Amboy 
Dukes performance was 
prematurely aborted due to 
prior arrangements made by 
the Union Board. Originally 
conceived as a daylight 
concert, the Amboy Duke's 
performance carried over 
past sundown, and though I 
understand the complications 
involved in the test-case 
situation, I wish the concert 
could have continued and hope 
that students understand the 
Union Board's position.

Music Faternity 

Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, the national music fraternity which 
claims such greats as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and the 
famous pianist from Shreveport, Van Cliburn, is celebrating 
their 75th anniversary. 

To pay tribute to their diamond anniversary NSU's Phi Mu 
Alpha chapter, Gamma Rho, presented a concert last 
Friday in the Student Union. Performing on the program 
were three ensembles; the Jazz Septet, the Wind Quartet and 
the Men's Chorus.

Demons To Hit Road,

This Saturday, Oct. 14, the 
Demons will meet the Lions of 
Florence State at Bradley 
Memorial Stadium in 
Florence, Ala. Kickoff is set 
for 7:30 p.m. 

The Lions are coming off a 
pathetic 1401971 season, with 17 
returning starters among the 
25 lettermen. 

They will be counting 
heavily on their new signees 
and a host of young assistant 

One returning standout is 
senior quarterback Randy 
Elmore, a 64, 185 pounder. 
Elmore led the Gulf South 
Conference last year in 
passing and total offense. 

He connected on 105 of 217 
passes for 1,527 yards and 
rushed for 199 more, for a 
total-offense mark of 1,728

Comeback Bid 
Trumps NLU 17-7 

By Richard Barnickel 

It took an outstanding 
performance by halfback 
Donald Johnson as NSU's 
Demons shot past rival NLU 
17-7 in a game played in 
Monroe on September 30. 

NSU marched 59 yards in a 
seven minute drive in the 
fourth period to go ahead by a 
10-7 count. Johnson and 
fullback Mike Harter bit off 
chunks of yardage in that 
drive while Lynn Hebert had 
two clutch completions. 
Harter, a sophomore running 
back from Shreveport, 
plunged the final two yards for 
the score.

Texas and 



came out throwing, but failed 
to mount a drive and ended up 
punting. NSU had the ball 
again on their own 48 yard line 
with two minutes on the clock. 
On a third down and seven 
play, Johnson slanted off right 
tackle and went 49 yards for 
the final score of the game. 
Randy Walker added the extra 
point and score stood 17-7. 

Northeast failed to score in 
the final 51 seconds on their 
last possession. 

NLU's Jimmy Edwards 
carried for 167 yards on 33 
attempts, which amounted to 
almost the whole offensive 
display for the Indians. The 
flashy Edwards zig-zagged his 
way through the NSU defense 
to display his running ability, 
which has been compared to 
that of Joe Profit. 

Northeast scored first when 
Edwards went six yards in the 
first period. Defense prevailed 
in the second stanza and NSU 
scored with twenty seconds 
left in the half when Walker 
booted a 23 yard field goal. 

Northeast fumbled away 
their chances to win the 
ballgame as Edwards lost the 
ball four times in the second 

The victory upped NSU's 
record to 3-1 on the season and 
2-0 in the GSC. Northeast fell 
to 1-3 on the season. 

Johnson rushed for 184 yards 
on 26 carries. His per- 
formance was two yards short 
of the single game rushing 
record set by Richard Ware in 
1970 against Southwestern

SPIRIT STICK- Pi Kappa Phi displays the spirit stick won at the Delta 
State pep rally for the most spirit. 

New House Purchased 
By Tau Kappa Epsilon 

Tau Kappa Epsilon has 
purchased the house on Greek 
hill which was formerly oc- 
cupied by KA, following two 
weeks of negotiations between 
TKE and KA. 

Glen Everage, Teke 
president, expressed the 
house's need for repair. "The 

repair will take time, but 
when it is finished, the Tekes 
will have a house to be proud 
of." Of primary interest is a 
paint job for the outside and 
furniture for the inside. 

The purchase was 
negotiated by Jack Beasley 
and Mike Wright, according to 

Everage. "Now it's every 
member's job to make the 
house what it should be," 
Everage said. 

The Teke house will be used 
for meetings, social events 
and recreation for members of 
the fraternity. Tekes are 
using the house for meetings 
at the present time.

and then give them as much responsibility as they can han- 
dle. Whatever their age. 

We have departments and divisions, like any company. 
What we don't have are preconceived ideas about how an 
expert scientist's time should be spent. So when we received 
a request from the medical community for assistance in ex- 
perimenting with lasers as a possible cancer treatment, we 
turned to 25-year-old Jim Carroll, who is deep in laser tech- 

right to fail. 

nology, and gave him the go-ahead. He built two half-billion 
watt laser systems, one of which Kodak has donated to the 
National Institute of Health. 

The lasers proved unsuccessful in treating cancer, but 
we'd make the same decision all over again. We entered laser 
technology because we have a stake in business. We let a 
young researcher help the medical community look for a 
means of cancer treatment because we have a stake in the 
future of mankind. 

To put it another way, we're in business to make a 
profit. But in furthering our own needs, we have often fur- 
thered society's. After all, our business depends on our soci- 
ety. So we care what happens to it. 


More than a business.

*Hot Sauce Questions * 

Can students swim in the Natatorium 
any time they wish if a lifeguard is on 

No. Dr. Hillard of the Health Recreation and PE depart- 
ment said that the free swimming hours in the natatorium 
are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays and 
from two to 5 p.m. on Saturday. Hillard said that classes are 
held in the Natatf rium and if everyone who wanted to swim 
came in during the classes it would cause some confusion. 

Is there any truth to the rumor that it 
will take only 112 hours to receive a B. A. 

The academic deans ana Dr. Richard Galloway are 
working together to reduce the number of hours for certain 
curriculums but Dr. Galloway said that to his knowledge 
there are none which now require only 112 hours. He said that 
reduction in hours will probably take place next year. 

Can you give me the ratings for the 
remainder of the Student Union movies 
this semester? 

I'll do better than that. I'll give you the names of the 
movies and the ratings. "Red Sky at Morning", a PG-rated 
film will be shown October 17 and 18. "Blue Water, White 
Death", a G-rated movie will be shown November 8 and 9 and 
"Tell Them Willie Boy is Here", a PG-rated film, will be 
screened December 7 and 8.

Head Defines 
Union Series 

Hie Executive Council of 
the Student Union Governing 
Board has named 23 persons 
to serve on the entertainment 
committee for the 1972 fall 

Persons chosen for the 
committee are Robert Mc- 
Carty, Doug Nichols, Chris 
Frazier, Bonnie LaRoux, 
Debbie Thomas, Pam Lee, 
Eddie McFearin, Patty 
Vidrine, Tommie Lu Smith, 
Curtis Gentz, Lula Cherry and

Richardson, Rodney Chan- 
dler, Kathey Crowley, Penny

The committee meets each 
Wednesday at 5 : 30 p.m . , in the 
Student Union. These 
meetings are open to the 
entire student body. 

Eddie Hebert, vice 
president of entertainment, 
said that any student should 
feel free to talk to any of these 

committee members about 
the entertainment series. 

"We urge people to come by 
and share opinions due to the 
fact that the entertainment is 
for the students," Herbert 

He also expressed concern 
for students to go by and see 
what work goes into getting a 
group at NSU. Conflicts such 
as cost, the group's 
availability at the time 
wanted, the group's punc- 
tuality, and the ability of the 
group to work with other 
persons has a lot of bearing on 
the groups NSU gets. 

Hebert commented that 
anyone wishing to see him 
may go to the Union Board 
'Committee Office, Room 236, 
in the Student Union. His work 
schedule is on the door of the 
office. If he is not there, he 
wishes that any student who 
goes by would leave a

Special Edition 

This issue is limited to 
activities for Tech 
Weekend. A regular 
edition was not planned 
due to mid-term exams. 

By Ronald Sanchez 

The Northwestern Demons and the 
Louisiana Tech Bulldogs collide on 
the college football gridiron this 
Saturday night as one of the major 
attractions of the Louisiana State 
Fair inShreveport. Kick-off time for 
the rivalry -renewal is 7:30 p.m. 

Coming as a climax to the frenzied 
student activity on both north 
Louisiana campuses, the football 
game each year generates more 
interest with the respective student 
bodies. The days preceding the 
game, known by Northwestern 
students as "Tech Week", are filled 
with various contests, pep rallies 
and displays to further bolster team 

The Purple-and White Demons of 
Coach George Doherty, their record 
now standing at (5-1) for the year, 
tare anxious to avenge last year's 
drubbing at the hands of the 
[Bulldogs. Nationally ranked and 
undefeated in the season, Louisiana 
Oi , l*P' ecn ' under the leadership of Coach 
TMaxie Lambright, will be equally 
anxious to continue their football 
supremacy over their down-state 
rivals. Louisiana Tech defeated 
Northwestern 33-21 in a free-scoring 
_ game last year. 

Continuing the tradition-laden 
classic begun in 1907, this Saturday's 
game marks the 58th meeting of the 
|wo football teams. Northwestern 
stands now at the bottom of the 
ledger, winning only 16 contests, 
Miile losing 37. Four outings ended 
in deadlocks. In recent years, 
however, Northwestern has fared 
considerably better, having won 
|«ix out of the last fourteen games, 
since 1958. 

Statistically, the Bulldogs have in 
taost respects dominated the series. 
Tech held the longest winning streak 
of nine games, from 1945-52. In the 58 
years. Northwestern has managed 
«ut three consecutive victories, 
from 1938-40. Northwestern suffered 




its worst defeat at the hands of Tech 
in 1911 by a score of 39-0. The 1932 
Demon team blitzed the Tech 
Bulldogs 33-0 in 1932 to humiliate the 
Ruston-based team. 

With the ever-present cries of 
"Wreck Tech", Northwestern 
students traverce the 76-mile ex- 
panse to Shreveport to participate in 
what has become the most spirited 
event of the year. The students, 
always confident of victory on the 
football field, fill every minute of the 
hectic "Tech Weekend" with par- 
ties, bonfires, and lively pep rallies. 
Even the most serious student can 
get caught up in the hysteria of the 

The word excess is obliterated 
from the mind of the Northwestern 
student as he becomes one of the 
milling throng of spectators and 
participants on Texas and Milam 
streets in downtown Shreveport. For 
that one brief, unforgettable 
weekend, the oblong pigskin and the 
100-yard field become the focal point 
of attention, as a carnival at- 
mosphere overides the whole scene. 

The traditional activities leading 
up to the climactic head-on clash 
promise again this year to add the 
necessary flavor to "Tech 
Weekend." A reception honoring the 
State Fair Courts and student body 
officers of both schools will be held 
Saturday morning at Shreveport's 
Civic Center. Addresses will be 
given by Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, 
president of NSU, and by Nor- 
thwestern SBA president Roddy 
Dye. Other visiting dignitaries will 
also participate in the luncheon 

Already various contests on the 
Northwestern campus have taken 
place and more are on tap for the 
next few days before the game. 
Fraternities, sororities, 
organizations and clubs have cen- 
tered their sign-making talents to 
come up with the most original and 

Braces For NSU Influx 

inventive creations. A football game 
between the student body officers of 
the competing schools is scheduled 
for tomorrow afternoon to further 
bring the intense competitive spirit 
to a peak. 

Another traditional aspect of 
"Tech Week" is the mock trial and 
execution of the Tech Bulldog. Each 
year this unfortunate cur is captured 
and tried for heinous crimes and 
misdemeanors. Perennially found 
guilty, the Tech Bulldog is hanged 
and finally burned in effigy at 
Thursday night's pep rally. 

To the winner of Saturday's battle 
goes the prized Tech-Northwestern 

flag, nicknamed "The Rag". The 
tradition of presenting the winning 
school with this symbolic emblem of 
football superiority began in 1949 and 
since then four different pennants 
have served that purpose. 

Though the occasion could not be 
compared to the pomp and glory of 
the Army-Navy game, the UCLA- 
Southern Cal meeting, or other such 
traditional collegiate classics, the 
Tech-Northwestern game does 
generate unparellelled excitement 
among Northwestern student and 
alumni as well. The football pen- 
dulum of the season rests on the 
outcome of the long-anticipated 

game. And while Northwestern 
students and alumuni sometimes 
shake their heads at the victories 
amassed by the Bulldogs, loyal 
Demon followers always expect to 
come away from the State Fair 
Grounds with a satisfying victory. 

But no matter which team 
emerges as the eventual victor, no 
matter which spirited student bodv 
carries home "The Rag" in 
jubilation, and no matter which 
university administrators and 
student body officers eat the 
specially-prepared "crow" next 
Monday, Tech Weekend has again 
brought an unusual liveliness to NSU 


Northwestern's queen and members of the court (queen), Angela Jones, Kathleen Van Asselberg, 

will be presented during pre-game ceremonies at Susie Hines and Margaret Zulick. Nominations for 

the NSU-Tech game. From left to right are Lissa the honor were made by each of the dormitories 

McCaleb, Joanne Sullivan, Mary Catherine on the campus and by other university 

Bounds, Kathleen Hughes, Brenda Fitzgerald organizations, both on and off campus.

Annual NSU-Tech Bloodletting Is Saturday 

If you've noticed a certain 
tension in the campus air 
lately, the reason for this 
electrically-charged at- 
mosphere is pretty obvious 
(unless you've been living in a 
cave the last 65 years). 

We are all aware of the 
great Louisiana State Fair 

By Mark Ezarik 

rivalry dating back prior to 
the Great War. 

The first Demon-Bulldog 
game was in 1907. Since then 
57 games have been played 
with Tech having a tremen- 
dous lead in the win-loss 

Northwestern has managed

to win 16 of those 57 games, 
tying four and losing 37. Not a 
very impressive standard to 
wave over the heads of the 
arrogant Techsters is it? 

The record has evened out, 
however, in the last ten years 
with both teams winning five. 

The Demons' last win over 
the Bulldogs came in 1970 in 
the 20-17 breathtaker. Last 
year's game was no. such 
stopper-of-hearts; -Tech 
romped to a 33-21 conquest 
with practically all her points 
accumulated in the first half. 

This game will by far be our 
roughest one. Tech is number 
one in the AP college poll, and 
that is nothing to thumb your 
nose at, but this is a special 
kind of game. 

In an old rivalry such as this 
one, the record books and 
past achievements must be set 
aside and we must view the 
facts with an open mind. 

Northwestern 's biggest 
problem last year was Charles 

The Insider 
Quite Out of 

the Ordinary 

$ 9 

"Quick-Six- McDaniel, by far 
the " baddest" running back 
the Demons faced. Well, 
McDaniel 's back, and tough as 


Quarterback Ken Lantrip 
has left the Bulldog ranks, but 
his vacancy has been filled 
quite handily by Denny Duron, 
a converted split end from 
Shreveport. Duron, in fact, 
has been compared favorable 
to Lantrip. 

The young quarterback can 
definitely throw, and what's 
worse (from an NSU point of 
view) is that he has someone 
to throw to. 

Ever hear of Roger Carr? If 
you haven't heard the name 
yet you can be sure you'll hear 
it Saturday. MdNeese coach 
Jack Doland called Carr "the 
best wide receiver we've ever 
faced." Add to that Carr's 
junior status and the fact that 
he never played high school 
ball. This would seem to in- 
dicate room for improvement, 

a year and one- half to do so, 
and another long State Fair 
Game next year. 

But Carr's isn't the only 
good pair of hands on the Tech 
team. There's also Eric 
Johnson. Johnson's catches 
may not be as spectacular as 
Carr's, but that does not mean 
he's not as good-he's just not 
as flashy. 

Another man the Demons 
will have to look out for is half- 
back Glen Berteau, a double- 
threat who can run or pass 
with laudable facility. 

On the other side of the coin, 
Tech's defense is also the 
object of a great deal of 

Anchoring the defensive line 
is tackle Fred Dean, who is 
considered the best Tech has 
ever had at that Dosition. 
Dean, 6'4", 224 pounds, is one 
of the five fastest men on the 

Much of Dean's assistance 
will come from cornerback 
Wenford Wilborn, who figured 
strongly in last year's game. 

Also on the Southland 
Conference Champ's defen- 
sive unit are linebacker Joe 
McNeely, tackle Charles New, 
and a well-matched pair of 
ends, David Wilkinson and 
Mike Meyers. 

Aside from a rather inex- 
perienced offensive line, the 
Bulldogs look real solid and 
well-balanced, and their 5-0 
record proves that. (This 
article went to the presses 
before last Saturday's game in 
which Tech played Arkansas

The Demons are working hard, preparing for Saturday's clash with

also implies a strong team, 
but they are not well-balanced 
offensively. NSU must take to 
the air only in time of crisis, 
but the Bulldog secondary is 
mighty tough and will 
probably stifle the Demon 
aerial circus. 

Tech, on the other hand, has 
a two- pronged attack with 
Duron a more than capable 
man at the helm. This is not 
meant as a slight against Lynn 
Hebert or Wilton Cox, for they 
have both done commendable 
jobs this season, but let us face 

With the NSU passing game 
what it is (or isn't) Maxie 
Lam bright 's boys will know 

that our hopes lie with the 
ground attack, as they have so 
often in the past. 

The heaviest load will be on 
the shoulders of Donald 
Johnson, Mike Harter, and 
Joe Beck Payne, Nor- 
thwestern's running backs, 
not to mention signal-caller 
Lynn Hebert. 

Both teams are very good, 
and both are leaders in their 
respective conferences, but 
right now it looks like Tech's 

I'd like nothing better than 
to eat those words this 
Saturday, even in front of the 
27,000 people at State Fair 
Stadium, but the chances of 

such an occurrence at present 
seem slim. 

Let's all get on up to 
Shreveport and root for our 
team, but I suggest we not get 
carried away and get our 
hopes too high. 

In fact, if Tech wins by less 
than 10 points, I'm going to 
call it a moral victory.

Ecologist To Speak 

Dr. LaMont Cole 

Department Plans 
Elective Program 

By Marilyn Miller 

The Department of Health, Physical 
Education and Recreation has announced the 
^adoption of a trial elective physical education 
program for all non-majors. The program 
will be initiated in the spring of 1973 and will 
continue on a trial basis for two subsequent 

Dr. Robert Most, head of the department : 
'Dr. Charles Thomas, vice president of 
ademic affairs; and Dr. T. P. Southerland, 
an of education, have been working on the 
ogram for the past two years. 
"By doing this," said Dr. Alost, "We (the 
partment) believe the rapport bet- 
ween the students and the department will 
improve, as will the teaching. We want the 
students involved in activities of their 

"All of the needs and interests of the 
students will be taken into consideration on 
our part . We intend to increase our offering in 
our program to include sailing, scuba diving, 
equitation (horsemanship) and other ac- 
tivities that the students want." 

"The department," continued Dr. Alost, "is 
Irying to move away from the idea of students 
having to take P. E. courses because they 
»eed to, to the idea of them taking it because 
hey want to." 

In the near future a survey will be made to 
fetermine what activities NSU students are 
Host interested in and when they want to take 
hem. The following conditions will be im- 
>lemented when the program does go into 

All P.E. activities (one through 29 and 51 
hrough 61) will change from one hour to two 
lours credit. Students will be allowed to elect 
^ take these courses on a credit (pass or fail) 
* grade basis. The decision of the student 
lust be made by the last date to add a course. 
Students will be allowed to register for an 
tetivity course and then to take a proficiency 
j-st in the sport within the first two weeks of 
L " course and receive the grade which the 
"structor determines is merited. 
Students will be allowed to repeat activity 
ourses for credit as many times as they elect 
5 do so except in those courses in which they 
a ve received credit on the basis of a 
•"oficiency test. 

Physical Education activity courses will be 
taken as electives and the credit and grade 
point average will be calculated as in any 
other course. A student can take an activity 
just for credit the first time, and if he 
acquires more skill he may elect to take it 
again for a grade. 

In the past few years at NSU, the physical 
activities have moved from team to lifetime 
sports. This, according to Dr. Alost, is 
because there is more leisure time now, and 
"just around the corner, with the advent of 
the three to four day work week, there will be 
even more time to pursue leisure activities." 

The entire program is designed to benefit 
the students. In other universities where this 
plan has been installed, students have con- 
tinued to seek activity because the exercise is 
beneficial and leisure is plenty. But these are 
not the only reasons for taking an activity. 

"Did you know," asked Dr. Alost,"that 
some insurance companies will not hire an 
individual unless he can play golf?" 

"The Department of HPER," stated Dr. 
Alost, "believes that its purpose is to in- 
troduce students to lifetime sports which will 
provide them with worthwhile leisure pur- 

Dr. LaMont C. Cole, professor of 
ecology at Cornell University, will 
speak at 11 a.m. this Friday in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium. All classes 
will be dismissed from 11 a.m. until 
noon Friday. 

Dr. Cole is an internationally- 
known ecologist, who for years has 
been in the forefront in the fight 
against environmental pollutioa 
Sometimes referred to as one of the 
"doomsday ecologists," Cole has 
had his pessimistic warnings about 
man's future in a polluted world 
published in such magazine as Time 
and Newsweek. 

Among Cole's chief concerns has 
been the earth's decreasing oxygen 
level --how man's "commercial 
exploitation" is destroying natural 
oxygen generators such as the rain 
forests of the Amazon Valley and 
equatorial Africa. 

Dr. Cole has stated that the fun- 
damental weakness in the en- 
vironment is overpopulation, and he 
takes a dim view of schemes to 
encourage or accomodate human 

At the close of the year 1970, Cole, 
in one of his more optimistic 
moments, said, "The astonishing 
achievement of the year is that 
people are finally aware of the size 
of the (pollution) problem." 1970 
was a year in which pollution 
became a household word and 
ecology became a national issue. 

During his visit on the Nor- 
thwestern campus, Dr. Cole will also 
address several student and faculty 
seminars which are being coor- 
dinated by the Department of 
Biological Sciences and the College 
of Science and Technology. 

Dr. Cole, a native of Chicago, 
joined the Cornell University faculty 
in 1948 as assistant professor of 
zoology. He has held the position of 
professor of ecology at Cornell since 

Dr. Cole's appearance is being 
sponsored by the University 
Assembly Committee and the 
Department of Biology. 

Dr. Cole worked for two years 
with the U.S.Public Health Service 
and has taught at the University of 
Chicago, Indiana University and the 
University of Utah. 

Cole earned his bachelor's degree 
from the University of Chicago and 
his master's degree from the 

Teaching Workload 

Senate Investigates 

An Administrative-Faculty Committee to 
Establish Work Responsibilities "was ap- 
pointed by the Northwestern Faculty Senate 
at the October 10 meeting of that university 
group. Proposed to investigate all aspects 
involved in an instructor's academic routing, 
the committee aims at determining the ideal 
workload for NSU faculty professors. 

Dr. Donald W. Hatley, assistant professor 
of English and chairman of the Faculty 
Senate, said the group plans to study the 
feasibility in assigning a designated number 
of required teaching hours. 

"There is in Louisiana and many other 
states serious consideration about what 
constitutes an adequate workload for the 

Questionnaire To Seek 
Interest in Craft Site 

All Northwestern students are asked to 
•spond next Tuesday, Wednesday, and 
"ursday to a questionnaire developed by the 
*afts and Hobbies Committee. This 
"estionnaire will be distributed in the dorms 
*" campus residents and will be made 
^liable in the second floor lobby of the 
^dent Union Building for completion by off- 
'Hpus residents. According to Fred 
J'sarge, dean of men and chairman of the 
. a fts and Hobbies Committee, it is important 
^ students take the amount of time needed 
■ re spond to this questionnaire . The results 
P determine the direction taken by the 
^irnittee as it studies the feasibility of 
^blishing a Crafts and Hobbies Center on 

^osarge further said, "The committee 
*'s that its first step is to determine if 
^thwestern students want a crafts and 
!*ies facility and if so, what crafts and 
"Dies are of greatest interest. Obviously, 
need a good, solid return on the 
j e stionnaire if the committee is to be able to 
e °tively continue its work." 

"Crafts and hobbies" include those ac- 
tivities to which one may devote his spare 
time. Crafts and hobbies generally involve 
manual skills and range across a diverse 
spectrum of activities such as woodworking, 
sewing, photography, automotive work, 
leathercraft, painting and macrame.' 

The Crafts and Hobbies Committee will be 
considering such matters as which crafts and 
hobbies would be included, where such 
facilities would be located and how the center 
would operate. In addition to Dean Bosarge, 
members of the committee are: Don 
Alexander of the art faculty; Dr. Bill Dennis 
of the Industrial Education and Technology 
Department; Freddie Fiallos representing 
the SBA; Pat Painter representing AWS; 
Mike Frazier from AMS; Vivian Carriere of 
the Student Union Governing Board; Dee 
Fulton representing the Housing Department 
and Dwight Boudreaux representing the 
graduate school. A seventh student member 
of the committee is yet to be named. Larry 
Amundson, arts and crafts director at Fort 
Polk, is also meeting with the committee in an 
advisory capacity. 

college faculty and this particular committee 
has the responsibility of looking into all of the 
instructor's duties," he said. 

Dr. Hatley said that the time involved in 
committee membership, the direction of 
graduate study, and in preparation of class 
instruction, will all be considered in the 
committee's ultimate findings. Northwestern 
presently requires a professor to teach a 15- 
hour workload and to hold an additional 12 
office hours for private counseling with 

Many university accrediting agencies 
recommend a reduced workload for 
maximum instructional efficiency and some 
other states, such as neighboring Texas, 
impose a smaller number of teaching hours 
on professors. 

"Many people do not understand the use of 
12 or 15 hours to designate a teacher's 
workload. The university teacher is required 
to do much more," Dr. Hatley said. "Though 
teaching is the most important aspect of the 
college professor's job, he has to do a great 
deal of work before and after the classroom. 
If he is serious about his profession, he needs 
to do a great deal of reading to keep up with 
the scholarship in his field and i:eeds time to 
add to the new scholarship by his own 

Dr. Hatley explained that various ac- 
crediting agencies and teachers from 
Louisiana and other states will be contacted 
during the committee's inquiry. 

The three faculty members appointed to 
the committee were Dr. Ed Matis of the 
Special Education Department, Ken Williams 
of the Biological Sciences Department, and 
Rivers Murphy of the Art Department. Dr. 
Charles F. Thomas, vice president of 
academic affairs, Dr. Robert E. Black, head 
of the Speech an Journalism Department, and 
Dr. Peggy J. Ledbetter, dea n of the College of 
Nursing, represent the administration on the 
committee. Dr. Arnold R. Kilpatrick, 
president of Northwestern, and Dr. Hatley 
will serve as ex-officio members of the

torate degrees from the University 
of Chicago and the University of

Interest Shown 
In Black Studies 

The results of a black studies survey con- 
ducted here by the SBA, with roughly 240 
students participating, were released last 
week by Joseph Johnson, assistant professor 
of English. 

A majority of students (170) felt that some 
type of a black studies program should be, 
instituted at NSU while only about 79 of those 
surveyed were interested in a degree 
program and only 31 said they would major in 

A majority of the sampling did not feel that 
it justified the establishment of a minor and 
they personally would not minor in it. But 143 
persons did prefer separate elective courses. 

When asked which three courses they would 
be most interested in taking, the top choices 
were Black History (116), the role of the 
Black in America(lll), and problems of the 
Black (95). 

The survey also pointed out that 103 would 
actually enroll in the above courses as 
electives. There were 179 students who said 
they would not refuse to take the course if it 
were taught by a black instructor to 36 who 
said they would and 182 said it would not 
matter if the instructor were white. 

The survey which was given along with the 
SBA elections was not as complete as planned 
due to a lack of the necessary forms. 

Based on these results, a committee con- 
sisting of Johnson, Dr. Craig Leppin, and Dr. 
Edward Anders will make a recommendation 
to President Arnold R. Kilpatrick concerning 
the program. 

The committee, which had urged interested 
students to contact them, were "over- 
whelmed by the indifference of the students," 
according to Johnson. Students are still in- 
vited to offer any suggestions. 

Opera Thr iter Slates 
'Susannah' Production 

The Northwestern Opera Theater, in its 

third year on campus, will present Carlisle 
Floyd's "Susannah" this Thursday and 

Friday at 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts Auditorium. 

The production under the management of 

Richard Cage. 

"Susannah," winner of the New York Music 
Critic's Circle Award for the "Best Opera in 
1956," was adapted from the story of 
"Susannah and the Elders" found in the 14th 
Book of Daniel. This book is contained in "The 
Apocrypha," a work composed of additional 
writings to the original biblical text but with 
no proof of authorship. Floyd changed the 
biblical setting to New Hope Valley, Tenn. a 
mountain settlement in the 20th century. 

Susannah, played by Bunny Curry, is a 
young girl living in New Hope Valley who has 
been ostracized from the community because 
of petty jealousies among the people towards 
her. The villagers are convinced that 
Susannah is sinful and must confess her sins 
at one of their church revivals. 

Keith Dixon plays Sam Polk, Susannah's 
brother. He persuades Susannah to attend one 
of the prayer meetings in the town. At the 
revival, the Rev. Olin Blitch, sung by David 
Berryman, preaches "hell-fire and brim- 
stone" to Susannah in an attempt to make her 
confess her sins. Susannah's only 

friend is Little Bat McLean, sung by Jim 

Many of the roles in the opera have been 
double-cast; one member singing a part on 
Thursday night and the other member singing 
the same part on Friday. The Elder McLean 
will be sung by Faren Raborn and Wade 
Heaton. David Gates and Faren Raborn will 
both sing Elder Gleaton. Double-cast in the 
role of Elder Hayes are Ronald Perry and 
Drew Moore. Ronnie Bales and Bill Bond will 
both perform the role of Elder Ott. 

In the women's roles, Cynthia Riser and 
Mary Alice Jones play Mrs. McLean. Both 
Mary Alice Jones and Carol Almand have 
been cast as Mrs. Gleaton. Mary Hickman 
and Carol Repulski will both sing Mrs. Hayes. 
Vicki Morgel will play Mrs. Ott. 

"Susannah" utilizes both a chorus and an 
orchestra. The chorus is provided by mem- 
bers of the NSU Chorale. It will be supervised 
by Dr. William Hunt. Members of the Nor- 
thwestern-Natchitoches Symphony Orchestra 
make up the orchestra. 

Northwestern students may obtain their 
tickets by presenting their ID cards. Tickets 
may be obtained in the main office of the 
Music Department. 

Richard Cage, vocal instructor, organized 
the Opera Theater when he first came to 
Northwestern in the fall of 1970. "It's pur- 
pose," said Cage, is to "provide the music 
students at Northwestern a more varied 
background in all areas of music." 


Proposal To 
Rounds For Approval 

With university life meant to be a live and 
learn concept, the five-member sub- 
committee of the Housing Committee is at- 
tempting to draw up a dormitory visitation 
proposal for NSU students. 

At present, if the proposal passes all con- 
cerned groups visitation will be started this 
semester in all dormitories on a trial basis. 
Times for visitation have not been decided yet 
on the proposal. 

Steve McGee, vice president of the SBA, 
stated a major concern of the proposal is to 
provide security for the students. He ex- 
pressed that a way to stop anybody from 
wandering the halls was being worked on. 

Bill Schwartz, director of housing, has been 
investigating visitation of other colleges and 
universities across the U.S. for about a year. 

Survey Results 

McGee said because of this investigation we 
should learn from other schools mistakes, 
and try not to make the same ones. 

If it passes the groups (subcommittee 
Housing Committee, and administration), 
trial visitation will start this semester. The 
Housing Committee; Fred Bosarge, dean of 
men and Mrs. Lucile Hendrick, dean of 
Women will wait to see how students like 
visitation and what needs improving. 

McGee commented that the design of the 
dormitories limits what can be done. 
Restroom facilities are causing a problem. 

He also expressed that the Housing Com- 
mittee wishes dormitories to be more than 
places to "Hang your hat." 

Persons serving on the subcommittee are 
Bill Schwartz, Steve McGee, Terry Colburn, 
Cheryl Reese, and Faye David. 

Nixon Scores High 

President Nixon scored an overwhelming 
victory over Democratic presidential hopeful 
George McGovern this week in a random 
survey of Northwestern students. 

Northwestern 's Political Science Society 
conducted the survey of 435 students. Thomas 
Cummings, president of the society, said the 
students were selected at random in classes, 
dining halls, the Student Union and on the 

In the survey of presidential preference, 
Nixon received 324 votes for a total of 74.5 
percent. Eighty-four students or 19.3 percent, 
indicated they would vote for McGovern. 
Fifteen, or 3.4 percent, were for other can- 
didates, and 12, or 2.8 percent were un- 

Students were also asked how they would 
vote in the Louisiana race for the U. S. Senate, 
and Shreveporter Bennett Johnston was a 
heavy favorite on the campus. 

Johnston, who was narrowly defeated for 
governor by Edwin Edwards, had 286 votes 
for 65.7 percent of the students surveyed. 
Independent candidate John McKeithen, 
former two-term governor, had 63 votes for 
14.5 percent, and Ben Toledano, a 
Republican, had 36 votes for 8.3 percent. 

Hall Lyons had the support of two students, 
and 48, or 11 percent, were not yet decided on 
their candidate. 

Marty Gendron directed the Political 
Science Society survey.

This Side 

Of Sanity? 

SBA Budget Around Campus 

State of the Union 

By Niva Chavez 

Academic Stagnation 

Upholding academic standards should be the 
main concern of every university. As it stands the 
majority of NSU's faculty members are saddled 
with a 15 hour class load in addition to their other 
administrative duties. This situation allows them 
little, if any, time to do research which aids them 
in keeping pace with contemporary works in their 
particular fields. If the 15 hour course load is 
allowed to continue for a long period of time 
Northwestern's academic standards will 
gradually fall behind present standards and will 
eventually become stagnated. 

Neighboring states such as Texas have a 
general 12 hour class load in effect. One NSU 
faculty member stated that on some Louisiana 
universities, teachers having the responsibilities 
for the direction of thesis and graduate work have 
a 12 hour load. He also mentioned that the 
National Council for Teacher Accreditation 
suggested that a nine hour class load for most 
teachers would best insure maintenance of 
academic standards. 

As President Kilpatrick has stated our budget 
is not adequate to allow high salaries for less and 
less work. Yet, as several students have noted 
NSU seems to spend wasted money on non- 
academic aspects of the university. In striving to 
uphold NSU's academic standards, it would seem 
that if anything should be eliminated for 
budgetary reasons, the first to go should be these 
non-academic concerns. 

Another Giant Step 

Northwestern takes another giant step in racial 
relations — backwards. 

The process of setting up state fair court escorts 
proved that some Northwestern students are 
unwilling to shed their ingrained prejudices. It 
has been customary for male SBA members, in 
order of highest office and then class 
classification to escort the members of the court. 
For some reason, the court decided that they did 
not want it run this way this year. The problem — 
a black student happened to have worked his way 
into an executive position and would be entitled to 
escort one of the members of the court. 

But never fear — the court came through. The 
student also happened to be married, so they 
decided that, in keeping with PROTOCOL, all 
married members on the SBA would be excluded 
from the honor of walking the co-eds down the 
field. According to one involved with this event, a 
meeting of the court was called to discuss the 
situation and the women were said to have used 
protocol as a way out. 

A student's marital status really seems of minor 
importance. The women are supposedly being 
escorted down that field with a title, be it 
president, secretary or senator. One's race or 
marital status does not depreciate the office one 

Another key word is ESCORT. The student 
selected to escort the girl is not her DATE. He is 
merely accompanying the girl to receptions in her 
honor and across a football field. 

Human dignity is perhaps the most valued 
possession of any person. I do not feel that the 
hurt and humiliation incurred by the above 
mentioned SBA member was necessary, nor is it 
excusable. No representative group of the student 
body should be the cause of such deep hurt in any 
fellow student. 

The student involved best summed up my fears 
in a talk he gave to the SBA Monday before last 
"What happens in the future if the student is black 
unmarried and doesn't have the easygoing at- 
titude I have?" *

Research Project Underway 

Dr. David Dobbins of the Department of Earth Sciences is 
engaged in a research project which could aid the petroleum 
industrv in its search for oil. 

Funded by the American Chemical Society's Petroleum 
Research Fund, the project is designed to show the changes 
which take place between pore water and sediment before it 
turns to rock. 

For his research, Dr. Dobbins spent two days collecting 
core samples from Lake Maurepas and Barataria Bay; 
both near New Orleans. It has taken him nearly three years 
to completely analyze the samples he brought back. 

Dr. Dobbins said, "In this kind of research, you find the 
answer to one question and five others follow. But we must 
find some answers to save ourselves against a shortage of

Students Take Field Trip 

Eleven geology students at Northwestern left today to 
participate in a field study trip to the U. S. Corps of 
Engineers' Waterways Experiment Station in Vicksburg 

Accompanying the students will be Dr. David Dobbins of 
the Department of Earth Sciences. 

While in Vicksburg, the students will see what ex- 
perimental work the Waterways Experiment Station is 
conducting in stream control and will be briefed on soil 
research. They will also see the station's concrete laboratory 
and equipment used in analytical experiments. 

Students scheduled to make the trip are Adron Temple, 
Malcolm Hynson, Michael Melia, Louise Pierce, R. L. 
Colvard, Jr., Patrick Thompson, Harry Stewart, Murray 
Moore, Tim Poston, Dwight Lenard, and Glenn Taylor. 

Dr. Kinard Attends Symposium 

Dr. C. R. Kinard, head of the Department of Special 
Education, will attend the second annual International 
Symposium on Learning Disabilities in Miami Beach, Fla., 
this week. 

Special education directors from 11 colleges and univer- 
sities in Louisiana are being sponsored at the meeting by the 
State Department of Education in an effort to upgrade ser- 
vices throughout the state in the area of learning disabilities. 

Caddo Parish Leads 

Caddo Parish is Northwestern's leading contributor of 
students this semester, according to a breakdown of fall 
enrollment figures. For several years, Caddo has been 
NSU's leader in fall enrollment. 

Rapides Parish has the second largest number of students 
at Northwestern. The third largest contributor of students to 
NSU is Natchitoches Parish. Vernon Parish is fourth with 

As an added attraction to 
the Student Union Governing 
Board, a committee of 
students on the clinical 
campus at Shreveport has 
been established. Chaired by 
Carol Susan Henderson, the 
newly formed committee 
consists of Terry Anderson, 
June Day, Yvonne King, Rita 
Gauthur, Dorothy Harrison 
Cheryl Wheaton, Diane 
Teckell, Denise Wittenburg, 
Karen Warthenburg and 
Marsha Cow-viUe. 

The purpose of the com- 
mittee is to bring en- 
tertainment and recrea- 
tional facets to North- 
western students on the 
clinical campus. Presently, 
the committee is in the 
process of surveying the 
nursing dormitory to deter- 
mine the types of en- 
tertainment most desired. 
Planning has begun on 
possible programs to be made 
available to the Shreveport 
campus » 

Programmed for this 
semester, in addition to the 
activities available on the 
Natchitoches campus, are 

movies, coffee houses and 
distribution of gift packs. 
Hopefully programming will 
be expanded for future 
semesters to include a variety 
of programs and projects. 

Long overlooked, the North- 
western students of the 
Shreveport campus deserve 
recognition and attention. 
While a part of Northwestern, 
these students are separate 
and, therefore, sometimes 
forgotten. In the interest of the 
entire student body, the Union 
Board is attempting to 
establish better com- 
munication with those 

Through time, effort and 
cooperation, the separate 
bodies can become cohesive. 
For the future interest of the 
University, this joining is 
important and essential. 

My thanks especially go 
thoses committee members at 
Shreveport clinical campus 
who are striving in the interest 
of Northwestern. They've 
done a great service to the 
Union Board, and I believe- to 

pledges c 

Student Writes On Delay 

Dear Editor, 

It bothers me that our SBA 
is not acting upon what I 
consider to be relevant 
matters. Not only this, but at 
times I feel they rush through 
their meetings trying to make 
an invisible one hour deadline 
(more or less). 

Last week they ambigiously 
said they would look into a 
black and white encounter 
group proposed by Dr. 
Breckenridge of the 
Psychology Department. 
They did not want to give 
money to a project they did 
not fully understand. Fine! 
But as an outsider to SBA 
meetings, I feel I understand 
the purpose of this project and 
more than this I feel that this 
group should try to act a little 
faster on this proposal which 
offers so much to the future of 

So our SBA procrastinates 
on this matter, but with the 
exception of last week, some 
members seem afraid to stay 
beyond an hour. When the 
question to join LSA or not was 
first brought up a few weeks 
ago they could not get the 
discussion over fast enough. 
When the black studies survey 
was brought up the time 
allotted for discussion was not 
nearly adequate. I have had a 
general feeling of rushing the 
SBA meetings since the 
beginning of the semester. 

But we do have the ex- 
ception of last week when the 
discussion was lengthy. 

Lengthy yes, but all that 
happened was an embittered 
argument which said little on 
the matter of joining LSA. I 

still do not quite understand 
the exact nature of LSA even 
after this the last meeting My 
eardrums are fairing no better 

I do not advocate taking the 
time the U. S. 92nd congress 
has devoted to debate, but I 
feel the SBA as my 
representatives should not 
rush through meetings. Who 
knows, our SBA may end upJife 
just like the 92nd Congress — 
delaying important 
legislation only to do a rush 
job on it in the end. And still 
leaving a backlog of decision 
waiting so senators and 
representatives can brain- 
wash voters in time for the 
next legislative meeting.

Campus Security Serves 
Demands of Students 

Students are often prone to 
think that Campus Security 
officers exist only to write out 
parking tickets, but in reality 
their duties are far more 
extensive and their jobs far 
more demanding. 

No doubt students 
legitimately complaiin about 
security actions at times, but 
it is to the security office's 
credit that efforts are often 
made to hear students out. 
The campus security office 
can also be termed 
progressive. Northwestern 's 
security force has hired the 
first female campus security 
officer in the state. 

As for progress, James 
K.Lee, chief of Campus 
Security, can remember as a 
lieutenant borrowing 
someone's car to patrol the 
campus in 1955. There are 
presently 17 full time officers 
assigned to NSU's force. Such 
an officer works 40 hours a 
week with additional special 
assignments. Eight officers 
are civil service rated and 
nine are unclassified. 

Each officer must pass a 
required basic training course 
that is given by the LSU Law 
Enforcement Institute at 
Baton Rouge. Instruction is 
given by Louisiana State 
Police officers and the 
Federal Bureau of In- 
vestigation in the many facets 
of law enforcement. The 
course lasts for ap- 
proximately six weeks. 

Other training is given on 
bomb disposal and 
recognition. This course also 
covers safety and evacuation 
from danger areas. 

Narcotics training is also 
given in detail and the most 
commonly used drugs. The 
course teaches recognition of 
capsules and how a person 

might act when under the 
influence of different drugs. 
Several of the officers here 
have attended courses on 
narcotics other than the one 
given in their basic training, 
such as the drug seminar 
course offered at NSU. 

A retraining program is 
given every two years to 
campus security officers. This 
course is required and lasts 
for approximately 18 weeks. 
During the time the officer is 
in this program, he or she will 
attend classes four hours a 
week. Personnel are given 
refresher courses and areas 
are covered that are new or 
have been changed. 


Officers at NSU enforce 
state laws, Natchitoches city 
ordinances and university 
policies. This covers a large 
area of regulations to which 
all students are subject. 

The current force strength 
is felt to be adequate for 
normal activities. There are 
some problems during special 
events though.Chief Lee hopes 
to eventually have a 20-man 
staff but that will only happen 
when the economic situation 
will allow It. 

There is currently only one 
full time secretary for the 
security office and the other 
employees are students. 
Radio operators, parking tag 
sellers, and the parking ticket 
chief are students. 

Often students feel they are 
given parking tickets unjustly. 
Students may talk to officials 
in the security office, but more 
profitable to the student would 
be to take any suggestions or 
complaints concerning illegal 
parking to the Traffic Safety 
Committee of the SBA, headed 
by Floyd Copell. 

Training is given in 
firearms safety and 

marksmanship. This portion 
is instructed by the FBI and is 
covered in great detail. The 
basic weapon used is the .38 
caliber revolver. 

State Police instructors 
cover the areas of traffic 
codes, criminal investigation 
and riot control. Traffic code 
instruction covers the current 
state and federal regulations 
on motor vehicles. This in- 
cludes accident investigation 
and accident reporting, traffic 
control and traffic direction. 

Riot control is also covered 
by the Louisiana National 

Emergency Requests 

Campus Security officers 
are also on the receiving end 
of many emergency tran- 
sportation requests. Someone 
is sick, left stranded, or has 
another such emergency, and 
who do they call? There are so 
many of these requests that a 
monthly average would be 
near the hundred mark ac- 
cording to Chief Lee. 

Concerning the handling of 
guns, officials point out that 
problems occur on university 
campuses much like that of a 
large city. Armed robberies, 
assualts and rape have been 
reported at Northwestern and 
officials feel added protection 
to individuals is given when 
officers carry guns. 

Each officer is instructed in 
the proper use of weapons and 
also signs a certificate that 
covers the fact that he realizes 
the responsibiltiy he has while 
wearing a gun. 

Chief Lee stated that, 
"during my entire 18 years 
here I have never known of an 
incident where an officer has 
used his weapon. There have 
been times when the use of a 
gun may have been justified, 
but we try to handle things 
without it." 

NSU Sponsors Project 

Communication Improves 

Northwestern has passed 
the halfway point in a pilot 
project begun last December 
which hopefully will improve 
communication with public 
school children and ease the 
problems of integration . 

The unique project is called 
the Emergency School 
Assistance Program. 
Facilities and staffing of the 
project are being handled by 
NSU, and Robert 
Breckenridge of the Depart- 
ment of Psychology is 
project coordinator. 

The Natchitoches Area 
Action Association is super- 
vising the federally-funded 
program, which involves 
some 370 seventh graders 
from Cloutierville, Robeline, 
Camcti. and Natchitoches. 
The Department of Health, 
Education and Welfare is 
providing $50,000 to finance 
the project. 

ESAP consists of four dif- 
fernt angles: expressive 
movement, improvisational 
drama, technical drama 
workshop and laboratory 
learning, according to 

H. J. Baptiste, executive 
director of the NAAA states 
that communication is the 
main problem in integration 
and said the new project was 
formulated to "make the 
whole transition of integration 
within the community run 

smoothly. It involves students 
and community people in 
meaningful activities that 
hoepfully will give both races, 
black and white, an ap- 
preciation and a better un- 
derstanding of each other." 

Breckenridge said, "We are 
giving these public school 
children an opportunity to 
have cultural enrichment: the 
four different angles were 
purposely formulated for 
them to develop interpersonal 
communication skills." 

Parents of these seventh 
graders were confronted at 
the start of the project by 
Jerry Annand of the Nat- 
chitoches Ministry of 
Reconciliation to educate 
them on the purposes of the 

"We did this," said Annand, 
"in an effort to get parents to 
sit down in a bi-racial group to 
talk about their concerns for 
their children in public 
schools. We started in June 
recruiting parents for the 
project and are still working 
on it. If we can get the parents 
to communicate, then we can 
get the children to com- 
municate, also.*' 

It a known fact that most 
children who have learning 
problems are poorly coor- 
dinated, Breckenridge said. 
By introducing them to ex- 
pressive movement, said Dr. 
Colleen Nelken, professor of 

Chorale Sets Plans 

The University Chorale of 
Northwestern has set its 1972- 
73 choral season, according to 
Dr. William Hunt, director. 

Five choral concerts, in- 
cluding a five-day concert tour 
in January, have been 
scheduled by the Department 
of Music, with the first per- 
formance by the University 
Chorale set for December 5 in 
the First Methodist Church, 

On that program, the NSU 
Chamber- Choir and the 

tour by the University Chorale 
from January 15-19, an all 
choral program by the 
University Chorale on 
January 30,1973, a program of 
Madrigals and chamber vocal 
music by the Chamber Choir 
on April 4 and a presentation 
of "A German Requiem" by 
the Natchitoches- 
Northwestern Chorale and the 
Symphony Orchestra on 
Sunday, May 6. 

health and physical education 
and director of ESAP's ex- 
pressive movements, children 
will learn to be creative. 

"Through creative 
movement, a child can ex- 
press himself with movement, 
which is a means of com- 
munication where you express 
your feelings of happiness and 
hate and love," said Dr. 
Nelken, who has already seen 
success in the project. "Ballet 
is a form of non-verbal 
communication because its 
movements tell a story." 

In improvisational drama, 
more commonly referred to 
by Ray Schexnider of the 
Department of Speech as 
psycho-drama, the child 
discovers in these sessions 
with staff members that he is, 
indeed, unique and has in- 
dividualities. "What we hope 
to do," said Schexnider, "is 
make him aware of the needs 
of people and why people, such 
as kids his own age and 
adults, behave the way they 
do. These kids realize this in 
role playing, pantomime and 
improvisation. If he is made 
aware, then he will become a 
better functioning citizen 
within the community. 

In the technical drama 
workshop, under the direction 
of Bill Basham, also of 
Department of Speech and 
Drama, school children are 
shown how to construct ob- 
jects which express their 
feelings and emotions. 

In laboratory learning, 
under Dr. Don Gates of the 
Department of Psychology, it 
is hoped that each child will be 
made aware and sensitive to 
the needs and attitudes of both 
black and white people. "We 
hope that from these group 
discussions," said Dr. Gates, 
they will gain a better un- 
derstanding of each other 
which will release any hostile 
attitude they might have 
formed about people of 
another race."

Drama Offerings Provide 
Interesting Entertainment 

TICKETS ETC. — Parking tickets are probably 

the most visible part of Campus Security for 
many students, but this is hardly even a beginning 
of their real work. 

The opening productions for 
the "fall season of the 
University Theatre can 
definitely be termed,: 1. A 
success, or 2. A "failure. 
Choose your own lead to this 
review. I can't. Over all, the 
three plays were entertaining, 
innovative, and refreshing. 
They were a new kind of thing 
for NSU. But as far as 
choosing between a good or 
bad performance there is one 
big problem-that of difficulty. 
Unfortunately, there is no set 
way of giving a play a degree 
of difficulty rating as is done 
in diving or gymnastics 
compeitition. Let me attempt 
to explain what I mean, play 
by play.

Student Union President Rejects 
Radical Women's Lib Theories 

In an era resounding with 
the militant voices of 
women's liberation followers 
and the call for equality of the 
sexes, Northwestern has 
vested the responsibilities 
entailed in the Student Union 
Governing Board in a member 
of the "fairer sex". But Jo 
Pease, president of that 
student organization, refuses 
to accept the theory that her 
position represents a stride 
forward for the Gloria 
Steinman advocates on 

"I can't say that my serving 
as president of the Union 
Board is a strike for Women's 
lib because I don't believe in 
it," she said. "But I do believe 
in equality for women in 
employment positions. As far 
as capabilities go, it has been 
shown that women are just as 
able as men." 

The Student Union 
Governing Board, established 
three years ago to provide 
functions for the Nor- 
thwestern student body, at- 
tempts to focus a wide- 
ranging variety of presen- 
tations on campus. Jo ex- 
plained that while the Union 
Board presents "recreational 
entertainment" such as 
concerts, dances, and plays, it 
also seeks to provide 
"educational entertainment"

This semester the Union 
Board has presented Seal & 
Crofts and Bill Withers in their 
Big Name Entertainment 
Series, a rock festival, the 
Purple Light Coffeehouse, 
"The Cage," movies, and 

The organizational activity 
entailed in such preparation 
usually takes anywhere from 
three to six months. The 
diversified plans involved in a 
Union Board presentation only 
serve to stimulate the interest 
of the group's president. 

"There are so many things 
that the Union Board would 
like to do that we don't have 
enough hours in a day," Jo 
said. "We always have two or 
three projects going on, so we 
never have time to hit a

Functioning with eight

most part, completely inex- 
perienced actors. The play 
itself would be a very difficult 
undertaking even with more 
experienced actors. And this 
is the first play Batiste has 
ever directed. Because of 
this, I give "Happy Ending" a 
degree of difficulty rating 
(DoD) of ten. 

A new talent was seen on 
stage in this play, Sandra 
Pamplin. She needs workon 
stage presence and the like, 
but the natural ability to 
entertain is there. 

Michael LaCour, who 
played Arthur, had a small 
role in a one-act last year, but 
did nothing with it. He is 
really looking better in Ward's 
play. He was much more 
relaxed and with more ex- 
perience should be a real 
mainstay in the Drama 

Billy Housley played the 
"Radical Youth," (I think). 
For the most part Billy was 
solid but he did not get the idea 
across that he was a radical 
until late in the play. This was 
an error both on his part and 
the part of the director. 

But the audience liked the 
show and howca<:you argue 
with that? 

As for "Chamber Music" by 
Arthur Kopit, give it a "DoD" 
of five. It's not that the plays 
Kopit writes are pushovers in 
production, but director Wade 
Heaton had the cream of the 
Drama Department crop for a

Northwestern students in-

much as, if not more than, the 
high school students," Jo 

Jo, a senior accounting 
major from Springhill, is a 
Gemini with, as she says, "100 
things going at one time." 
Planning a career as possibly 
a CPA or in the student per- 
sonnel field, Jo expressed a 
strong view on a woman's role 
in society. 

"There's more to a woman's 
life after she's married than 
her husband and children. 
They'll benefit more if she has 
outside interests and ac- 
tivities," Jo continued. 

But she defiantly rejects the 
more radical Women's lib 
platform espoused by the die- 
hards of the movement like 
Betty Fredan or Germaine 
Greer. "If that's their thing, 
that's fine — but it's not for 
everyone, and it's certainly 
not for me," she concluded. 

As she admits, her career 
choices have in the past been 
dominated by the male. Jo 
anticipates no future 

"They're opening up now 
because they have been so 
male-oriented. Hopefully, IH 
hit them at the right time," Jo 
said. As she says, "Either 
way, IH just be another 
female in a male's role." 

Press Day 

NSU's fourth annual Meet 
the Press dinner will be held 
tonight at 5:30 pjn. in the 
Student Union. 

Program director Ezra 
Adams, associate professor of 
journalism, said the dinner is 
held annually to give jour- 
nalism students an op- 
portunity to meet with area 
newsmen and discuss careers 
in journalism and related 

Featured speaker for the 
dinner will be Robert Mc- 
Cord of the Arkansas 
Democrat in Little Rockj 

also, national director of News Media attending in- 

Clare Moncrief was, as 
always, the big attraction. If 
you go to see a play to laugh 
and Clare is in it you can never 
be disappointed. 

The same goes for Sally 
Graham. Sally adds 
something to every play she 
appears in and that's just 
what she did in "Chamber 
Music". She was very solid in 
her role of Susan B. Anthony 
and proved a good axis for the 
other actors to revolve 

I can't let the performance 
of Rick Barnickel go without a 
comment. My comment? 

"Chamber Music" had in its 
cast perhaps the best 
newcomer of the three 
productions-- Debbie 
Greene. Debbie had a special 
something that audiences like. 
She was new and different 
and very, very funny. My only 
thought is, was she acting? 
We'll just have to wait and see 
what she does with her next 

The third show was "En- 
dgame", written by Samuel 
Beckett and directed by 
James Wilson. There is no 
"DoD" anyone can give this 
play but ten. It makes no 
difference who is directing or 
acting in a Beckett play they 
are tough and Wilson used 
only one experienced actor, 
John David Etheredge. 

What can I say about 
Etheredge? He's tops. John 
takes the stage and keeps it 
from start to finish. His 
command of voice and body 
make him excellent ir. every 
role he plays, but he needs to 
expand and try different 
approaches to old problems. 
Did I say problem? Maybe it 
isn't one. The audience likes 
him, the directors like him, 
and so do I. It's always a 
pleasure to watch a per- 
formance he's in. 

There were only three other 
cast members in "Endgame". 
They were all good. But I 
think Wayne Daigrepont is the 
one to look at the closest. He's 
new and will be around for a 
long time. There is something 
about Wayne that makes you 
laugh just to see him. And 
when he opens his mouth and 
that high pitched "Cajun" 
voice spurts out of his short 
spheriodal body, no one can 
keep a straight face! 

The strongest point of 
"Endgame" was the direc- 
ting. I'm not saying this just 
because I know Jim Wilson 
personally, or because we 
share an office and he may see 
this review before you do. Jim 
knows what he is doing. He 
understands people and their 
problems, their likes and 
dislikes. This is an opinion 
shared by the whole Speech 
Department. He had directed 
a number of shows and each 
one is better than the last. You 
can see his ideas and in- 
novations in every scene. 

The cast and crew had only 
two weeks to produce these 
plays. If for no other reason 
than that, all three deserve a 
"DoD" of ten straight across 
the board. 

The technical work for the 
programs was excellent. 
Lights, sets and sound all were 
there and not noticed. That's 
good. When the technical 
work is perfect it adds to the 
play. If it stands out the 
production ceases to be a play 
and becomes an art exhibit. 

After an evaluation of the 
task attempted by the actors, 
directors, and crews, as I 
have tried to do, there is only 
one lead to this story-1. A

lot Sauce Questions * 

'hat kind of fish are in Chaplins Lake 
are they edible? 

I know the food around here isn't all that great but 
jon't have to resort to that. No, seriously, I'm glad you 
1 that. Dr. Baumgardner, biology professor, suprised 
•hen he said that there are largemouth bass, sunfish, 
ill, red ear, gar, carp, shad, channel catfish, and yellow 
* swimming around in the lake. 

'hy aren't the chimes in the Fine Arts 
'ding ever played? 

!w LeBrescu, who worked on the chimes last summer 
hat too many complaints on the noise in the classroom 
received from the teachers. 

Walker booted another field 
goal, this one for 25 yards out. 

With 7:31 showing on the 
clock, the Canine Corps was 
down 13-0, but then the tide 
began to turn. 

Northwestern tried an 
onsides kick, and a roughness 
penalty against the Demons 
gave LTU possession on the 
NSU 37. On the first play, 
Bulldog signal-caller Denny 
Duron connected in the end 
zone with Roger Carr. Danny 

Norris' PAT chopped the 
Demon lead to 13-7 with 7:19 
left in the half. 

Wilborn supplied the in- 
centive for Tech's go-ahead 
score in the third stanza. He 
snatched Walker's punt at his 
own 32 and hauled the pigskin 
back to the Demon 34. 

The Duron-Carr combo 
clicked again three plays 
later. Norris once more split 
the uprights and Tech took the 
lead for the first time in the 
game. 14-13 with 11 :25 to go in 
the third quarter. 

A short time later a Walker 
punt set the Dogs back at their 
own 11. Defensive end Troy 
Willis then spilled Duron for a 
nine-yard loss to the four. 

Mike Swinney's punt gave 
NSU the ball on the Tech 39. 
The Demons were again on the 
march and Walker footed the 
23-yard go-ahead. It was now 
16-14, Northwestern. 

Halfway through the fourth 
quarter the Bulldogs took the 
lead for good. 

The Ruston-based unit 
sustained a drive beginning at 
its own 24. Once again Duron 
hit Carr, this time for a 17- 
yard gain. Fullback Don 


Investigates ... 

The Faculty Senate, a 41- 
member resolution-adopting 
body, has been in existence at 
Northwestern since 1968. One 
of the leaders in faculty- 
administrative cooperation in 
the state, the Northwestern 
Faculty senate has this year, 
in addition to the Work 
Responsibilities Committee, 
been active in studying the 
practicality of instituting a 
black studies program on 
campus and the for increased 
campus security. 

Each department at Nor- 
thwestern elects one voting 
senator for each 10 faculty 
members in that particular 
department. A department 
with less than 10 instructors is 
allowed one representative. 

Meeting monthly to discuss 
the variout>\problems that 
arise in the successful 
operation oof a university 
system, the faculty senate 
attempts to formulate 
solutions to these difficulties 
with the cooperative effort of 
the administration. 

"The administration 
cooperated in the organization 
of the faculty Senate and has 
always welcomed suggestions 
of the group," Dr. Hatley 

'ill the students be able to leave their 
°ngings in the dormitories during the 
tester break? 

' Schwartz, director of housing, said that no final 
°n on this has been made yet. You can leave it if you 
'o but there is no guarantee that it will be there when 
''back. Also, NSU will not be responsible for it. 

V doesn't the history department 
/he students keep their old test 

j° n 't know where you got the idea that they don't because 

; th t0 ° r ' P ° e and he said 1,131 he does let nis students 
■ ei r papers. Dr. Rawson, however, said that he hands 

|{ ts back but for a short time, but he has to have them 

° r final checking. In other words, it is not a policy of the 

' department to keep the tests. 

|We does the money go that the 
^Pus Security receives from tickets?

Compete In 


Heavily-favored Nor- 
thwestern State University 
took its unbeaten cross- 
country team to Monroe 
Friday to compete in a three- 
way meet with Northeast 
Louisiana and Louisiana 

Starting time for the six- 
mile course was set for 3 p. m. 

The Demons have raced to 
six straight victories in cross- 
country this season and have 
one of the top teams in the 

Leo Gat son, a freshman, 
grabbed another first place at 
Lafayette last weekend. 
Gatson ran a 25.28 time for the 
five mile course. It was his 
third first place in six meets. 

Other NSU stars scheduled 
to compete in Monroe were 
freshmen Frank Trammel, 
John Been, Randy Moore and 
Philip McAndrew and 
sophomore David McLeod. 

The results of the Monroe 
meet will appear in next 
week's Current Sauce. 

THE GAME SAVER — It was this man, junior 
safety John Kelly, who made the game-saving 
interception against Florence State. The win was 
the fifth straight for the Demons, and moved their 
conference standard up to 4-0 and season record to 

Fulford picked up 19 yards on 
a draw play, and running back 
Glen Berteau chalked up eight 
stripes to set up the winning 

Duron, hurried by a vicious 
Demon rush, found Berteau 
just before going down. The 
halfback snared the pass and 
followed his blocking down to 
the one. The next play found 
Berteau bursting over the goal 
with 8:30 to play in the game. 
Norris missed on the PAT, but 
by then it was all over. 

The rock-ribbed Demon 
line, led by Gordon Boogaerts 
and Larry Walls held the 
Bulldogs to a mere 128 in- 
fantry stripes. 

It was Duron's passing that 
beat NSU. The junior quar- 
terback tallied two touch- 
downs and completed 5 of 26 
throws for 242 yards. 

Johnson and company 
outrushed the Bulldogs with 
225 yards on the ground. The 
injury-plagued Johnson led 
the field with 89 yards on 22 
carries. Harter carried 17 
times for 33 yards and one 

Charles "Quick-six" Mc- 
Daniel spearheaded the 
Canine ground attack with 43 

yards on 11 carries. Berteau 
had 37 yards after carrying tlO 

Carr and Eric Johnson each 
caught five passes, Carr going 
116 yards and Johnson 53. 

Walker set two records 
Saturday night. The three 
field goals in one night was a 
first for Demon kickers. 
Randy also holds the season 
field goal record with seven. 

Top Dog Maxie Lambright 
said NSU was "easily the best 
defensive club we have faced. 
If it hadn't been for our 
passing game, I hate to think 
what might have happened." 

On the lighter side, what 
will happen is a further 
humiliation of Northwestern 

SBA president Roddy Dye 
and Dr. Richard Galloway, 
vice president for students,

NSU -Cowboy Faceoff 
Slated For Saturday 

Saturday the Northwestern 
gridders will bus down to Lake 
Charles to do battle with 
America's fifth-ranked small 
college team (according to the 
October 13 AP College Poll). 

The McNeese Cowboys are a 
powerful team with a host of 
all-star candidates. 

Heading the lineup are two 
senior quarterbacks, both all- 
star prospects. 

Greg Davis has a career 
total of 142 completions out of 
301 attempts for 2,102 yards 
and 14 touchdowns. Davis also 
rushed for 27 yards and has a 
total offense mark of 2,111 

The other returning field 
general is Allen Dennis, who 
has had 107 completions of 209 
attempts for 1,493 yards. He 

has amassed, prior to the '72 
season, nine TD's 402 yards 
rushing, and a total offense 
standard of 1,895 yards. 

Also back with the offensive 
unit is James Moore, a tight 
end who has caught 47 passes 
for 679 yards and five touch- 
downs in his career. 

Tailback Barry Boudreaux 
has returned, with his career 
rushing average of 4.2 yards 
per carry. He has caught eight 
passes for 109 yards. 

Don Soileau, a fullback, is 
still with the Cowboys. He has 
a career rushing average of 
about 3.9 yards, has scored 
three TD's, and caught two 
passes for seven yards. 

Boudreaux tallied 421 yards 
in 1971; Soileau had 324; 
fullback Marshall Higgin- 
botham had 178 and tailback 
Enos Hicks had 354. 

The only all-star candidate 
on the offensive line is guard 
Buddy Console. Most of the 
rest of the line is relatively 

Billy Blakeman is still at the 
defensive back slot. Blakeman 
had 17 interceptions for 183 
yards and 47 tackles in his 

Carlos Medrano will be 
placekicking again. Last year 
he hit on ten field goals of 22 
attempts and 44 extra points 
out of 46 tries. 

At the linebacker position 

by Mark Ezarik 

the blue and gold Cowboys 
have Larry Rawlinson, a bad 
man who downed 71 opponents 
last year to lead the team in 
that category. 
The NSU defensive squad is 

a very stubborn one and the 
Cowboys' rather weak of- 
fensive line will make a sweet 
target for Gordon Boogaerts 
and company. 

However, both Big Mac 
quarterbacks have pretty 
good arms and reliable 
receivers, so the Demon 
secondary had better be up for 

John Kelly and John 
Dilworth have been doing 
quite well in the backfield and 
should do a good job in 
stanching the flow of Cowboy 
passes. Both men had better 
be on their toes, though, 
because James Moore is 
considered one of the best 
receivers around. 

NSU also revealed a com- 
mendable aerial assault 
against Florence State, and 

everyone knows how strong 
our infantry attack is. 

Remembering last year's 
tie when the Cowboys were 
ranked first, I can not help but 
feel a bit optimistic about this 

No matter who wins this 
one, it should be an exciting, 
wide open duel. Anything can 
happen in a contest like this, 
so an NSU upset can very 
well occur. 

But upsets are the exception 
rather than the rule, and 
McNeese does seem to have 
the upper hand, however 
slight, right now.

plan for preparing his Kansas 
State team for powerful 
Oklahoma in 1971: "Lord of 
Mercy, we prayed we wouldn't 
get killed."

Dr. Arthur Allen, director of 
pecan research here, said 
NSU is the only state 
university in Louisiana with 
an organized pecan program 
based on research, education, 
and service to pecan growers. 

The university, in its fifth 
year on the research program, 
has been credited by pecan 
industry leaders with helping 
to keep Louisiana in the "big 
four" pecan producing states 
with Georgia, Texas and 

Allen noted that NSU has an

campus and a field laboratory 
plus three orchards that it 
utilizes on an experimental 
farm in Banna. 

with questions concerning the 
loan program described below 
should direct them to the 
Financial Aid Office in Roy 
Hall headed by Harrell Haile. 

Emergency legislation, 
passed on August 19, 1972, and 
effective until March 1, 1973, 
makes it possible for lenders 
to make loans under the same 
regulations that governed the 
Guaranteed Student Loan 
Program prior to June 30, 

The program enables 
students to borrow money 
directly from a bank, credit 
union, savings and loan 
association, or other par- 
ticipating lender. The loan is 
guaranteed by a state or 

private nonprofit guarantee 
agency or insured by the 
federal government. 

Students may borrow up to a 
maximum of $1,500 per 
academic year. (In some 
states the maximum is $1,000 
per academic year and len- 
ders must adhere to state 
regulations.) The total 
allowed is $7,500. 

If a student's adjusted 
family income is less than 
$15,000 per year, the federal 
government will pay the in- 
terest on the loan while the 
student is attending school 
and until the beginning of the 
repayment period. The 
repayment period begins 
between nine and 12 months

Are young voters going to make any waves 
in the national political stream on November 
7? Which presidential candidate, Nixon or 
McGovern, will reap the benefits of youth- 
oriented voter registration drives? What are 
America's College students saying about the 
upcoming election? 

These are just a few of the questions that 
leaders in both camps, Democrat and 
Republican alike, are asking as this year's 
Presidential election draws nearer. Since 
the minimum voting age was lowered last 
year to 18, candidates for public office have 
been paying more attention to the so-called 
"youth vote" and what it can do. Will 25 
million newly-enfranchised young people 
"do" anything this November? 

A recent poll commissioned by Newsweek 
magazine and conducted by the Gallup 
organization shows that, so far, the 18 to 24 
year olds prefer Richard Nixon to George 
McGovern. The poll also reveals that the 26th 
Amendment, which was passed last year to 
give 18 year olds the right to vote, has 
produced no surge of youthful interest in this 
year's presidential campaign — a great many 
young people are simply bored and 
disillusioned by the whole affair. 

Asone Vermont college coed put it, "People 
have been running for President ever since I 
can remember, saying the war is going to be 
over... it's just been words. Who am I to 

This apparent reflection of young voter 
confusion is pointed out in the Newsweek 
survey, which says that only 48 per cent of all 
the newly enfranchised youth are likely to 
show up at the polls. The average national 
turnout for all age groups in presidential 
elections is 60 to 65 per cent. 

Youth-oriented voter registration drives 
were once thought to develop into a 
McGovern goldmine. Thousands of young 
people have been signed up by mobile 
registrars on street corners and campuses 
and at pop concerts. A surprise... the poll 
indicates that the higher the youth turnout, 
the more votes Nixon can expect to receive. 

There is a sharp division between young 
voters who have had at least some college 
education and those whj haven't according to 
Newsweek. Among those with at least some 
college background McGovern and Nixon are 
now tied with 48 percent each; in the non- 
college group, the President pulls ahead 54 to

menting on the recent formation of a "super 
committee" by the members of the SBA and 
the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce. 

The committee, which is composed of * 
Natchitoches businessmen, clergymen, high 
school and college students, is designed to 
investigate students' needs and problems. 

The NSU constitution provides for a 
Community Relations Committee for all 
students who are interested in a com- 
munications line between the students and the 

Similarly, the Natchitoches Chamber of 
Commerce wanted to build a good relation- 
ship with the students to Natchitoches. 
Therefore, they began inviting members of 
the SBA to attend their monthly meetings. 

This year the two organizations decided to 
merge into one "super committee", which is 
currently headed by Dr. Richard Galloway, 
vice president of student affairs. 

"We have found a way," 
said Dye, "in which we can talk to the people 
about our problems. Although 
solutions are not always guaranteed, it is an 
improved way to act constructively instead of 
not getting anything done at all." 

At present the committee is working on 
improved police relations, as well as a new 
check-cashing policy, which will allow NSU 
students to go into a bank and cash a check for 
more than currently allowed. 

Although American college-age 

voters seem to be split about evenly with 
respect to the presidential candidates, there 
are wide differences in preference according 
to geographic regions. 

In the East and Midwest for example, 
McGovern is running well ahead of Nixon, 
while in the South Nixon holds a commanding 
lead. In the West, the two candidates are 
neck-and neck. 

( On the NSU campus, Nixon is favored over 
McGovern, according to a random survey 
recently conducted by Northwestern 's 
Political Science Society. ) 

McGovern has scored impressive victories 
in mock elections on four college campuses in 
Missouri and 30 campuses in Massachusetts. 
Nixon received a particularly bad beating in a 
mock election at Washington University in St. 
Louis, Mo. Out of a total sample of 1,422 
students, McGovern received 1,195 votes, or 
84 per cent. Nixon pulled in only 227 votes, for 
16 per cent of those students polled. 

Besides geographic location, another major 
factor in student voter preference seems to 
be the student's class in 

college. The latest results of a special Gallup 
survey show that Nixon holds a substantial 
lead over McGovern among underclassmen 
(freshmen and sophomores), while 
McGovern runs strong with juniors, seniors, 
and particularly graduate students. 

A student's place of residence is also a key 
factor, according to Gallup. Those students 
who live on campus prefer Nixon, but off- 
campus residents are heavily on the 
McGovern side. Students who live at home 
with their parents, however, are strongly for 

While Nixon is a heavy favorite among 
students attending religious affiliated in- 

stitutions 1 74 to 26 percent) , McGovern leads 
among students enrolled in public and private 
colleges. The majority of Catholic youth seem 
to be leaning toward McGovern, 57 to 40 per 
cent), though the President has an even 
stronger edge among Protestants. (63 to 34 
per cent). 

Several months ago, George McGovern was 
labeled by the press as the "youth can- 
didate." Nixon campaign workers feared 
then that the sheer unfashionability of Nixon 
support would cost them votes on American 
college campuses. How has Nixon been able 
to hold his own among the youth? 

While McGovern scores high on a number 
of supposed "youth issues" — drugs, am- 
nesty, women's rights and abortion — the 
Newsweek poll shows that these issues are 
relatively unimportant to young people when 
it comes to picking a President. 
Despite the fact that McGovern has made 
character and credibility twin themes of 
his campaign, only a fraction of young voters 
see him as a man of principle. 

Trying to get the young to register and then 
to vote has been an important project for both 
presidential candidates. In addition, a 
number of nation-wide, non-partisan 
registration programs have been set up to 
encourage and aid newly enfranchised youth. 
A few of these programs are Frontlash, 
foundation-funded First Vote, National Voter 
Registration Drive, and the Youth Citizenship 

What difference is the "student vote" going 
to make in this year's election? Will the young 
who have recently won their right to vote 
figure decisively, or will a mere 48 per cent 
show up at the polls as predicted? November 
7 will tell all. 

Subject: Ecology 

Dr. LaMont C. Cole stated that a new city 
would have to be built every 15 days to house 
the people being born every day. Dr. Cole was 
addressing interested NSU students and 
faculty in the Fine Arts Auditorium last 
Friday on "The State of Our Environment." 

He went on to say that in each of these cities 
complete water systems, sewage treatment; 
plants electricity plants and schools would be 

"The standard of living will decline if the 
number of persons continues to increase," 
Dr. Cole said. The U.S. population has in- 
creased by 24 million people from 1960-1970. 

He expressed that the birth of an American 
is more serious to the world than the birth of 
an Indian. 

Another majorconcernof Dr. Cole's is strip- 
mining. Three million acres of U.S. land has 
been destroyed by strip-mining. He 
stated when a company strip-mines, top soil is 
removed, plant life is destroyed, people must 
be relocated and water levels drop in rivers 
and springs. 

Strip-mining is also expensive to town areas 
around the mining sites. Dr. Cole commented 
that one town used 40 per cent of their budget 
for road repair on roads damaged by coal 

Nothing has been done to help gain back the 
three million areas damaged by strip-mining, 
he expressed. 

The Cornell University professor stated 
that he has been "screaming about the en- 
vironment for the past 25 years without much 
success." He said that in the last three or four 
years people have begun to notice the en- 

Dr. Cole said that nuclear pollution will lead 
to 2500 additional cancer deaths. New safety 
standards should decrease radiation to one 
per cent from the light nuclear reactors but 
will not help stop radiation from heavy 

Another area which concerned Dr. Cole is 
the wet lands of the coastal areas. On the east 
coast about half of the wet lands have been 
destroyed and New York is losing about three 
per cent of its wet lands a year. 

Salt marshes are also being destroyed, he 
commented. These marshes are the best 
organic nourishment land around the U.S. 
because of sediment washing down with 

When salt marshes are destroyed sea-food 
industries suffer, the professor of ecology 
stated. Many sea animals get food from these 
salt marshes and when the food is gone the 
animals search for food elsewhere. 

Dr. Cole went on to tell about the many 
occurrences that took place when a dam was 
built in Ghana. Stopping of the river's high 
and low tide season made a breeding ground 
for the blackflies which carry a parasite. This 
parasite causes a disease commonly called 
river blindness. People along the river are 
sure to be blind when they become adults. 

The dam destroyed a clam industry by 
blocking sediment which the clams fed on. 
Also water lettuce became heavy, causing 
more water to evaporate than should have. 

Dr. Cole believes that the Alaskan oil field 
will only last four to seven years and most of 
the oil from the field will be sold to Japan. 
This causes him to think the so-called energy 
crisis is really nothing to worry about if the 
government sells fuel to foreign countries. 

"If the environment keeps getting worse it 
will eventually kill us off sooner or later, 
probably sooner!" Dr. Cole said. 

To Speak 

On Rape 

Frederic Storaska, the nation's foremost 
authority on assaults on women, will speak on 
the topic "To Be Or Not To Be Raped — 
Prevention of Assaults on Women" in the 
Student Union Ballroom on Monday, Nov. 7 at 
7:30 p. m. 

Storaska's appearance is sponsored by 
the AWS in an effort to educate students in 
self-defense against sexual assaults. 
Storaska, who has been lecturing on college 
campuses since 1964, spoke to Northwestern 
students two years ago. 

He will discuss self-protection, a man's role 
in preventing assaults, and the role of the 
parent or teacher in preventing assaults on 

He has been praised by campus leaders 
for his straight-forward and humorous style 
in discussing an otherwise uncomfortable 
subject. The chief investigating agent of the 
State Bureau of Investigation has accredited 
the Storaska's lectures with saving the life of 
at least one young woman and has testified 
that more women could have survived at- 
tempted assaults if they had seen Storaska's 

All interested people are urged to attend. 
An admission of one dollar will be charged to 
anyone not having a student I. D.

Pre -regi s tra tion 

All undergraduate students currently 
enrolled should pre-register for the spring 
semester of 1973 beginning October 31 
until November 2. A student should check 
with his department head to determine the 
exact time he is to pre-register. 

It is the student's responsibility to see 
his adviser during the time designated for 
his pre-registration.

\This Side 
I Of Sanity? 

By Niva Cha vez 


Formation of a "super committee" made up 
of Natchitoches businessmen, high school and 
college students is currently working to establish 
a new check-cashing policy with Natchitoches 
banks, which will make it possible for students to 
cash checks for amounts larger than is now 
allowed. This I believe is a very necessary and 
worthwhile project. Students receiving monev 
from home and having the need to cash large 
checks find it almost impossible to cash checks 
without the presence of a co-signer who has an 
account at the bank cashing the check. 

If problems such as these can be dealt with 
through such a committee, only good can be 
reaped. The relationship between the town- 
speople and the students can also be 
strengthened through the exchange of gripes and 
the ultimate solving of problems. 

Dormitory Support 

Northwestern's only co-educational dorm 
(Natchitoches dormitory) has proved a great 
success this semester. So much so, that NSU 
students are actively seeking the approval of 
establishing other such dorms on campus. 

Natchitoches dorm has received praise from 
students for several reasons. One being that the 
"open" lobby available to dorm residents after 
12 midnight, has enabled several students that 
much needed extra hour for group studying. 
This is an impossibility for other students unless 
all members of the group are of the same sex. 
Students involved with extra curricular ac- 
tivities sometimes find themselves with their 
study hours taking up the later hours of the 
night. Co-ed dorms make it possible for different 
students to get together and discuss class notes 
or study for tests as late as they deem 

Another advantage of such a living situation is 
the absence of the "dates only" atmosphere of 
the lobby. In most men's and women's dorms 
the lobbies are used mainly by couples. 
Residents of these dorms have reservations 
about using the main lobbies as places to relax, 
study, or watch television unless they are ac- 
companied by a date. Natchitoches' situation 
seems to have dispelled these reservations in its 
residents. Inter-student relations seem to have 
been strengthened. 

When faced with the current off -campus living 
trend and possible enrollment losses, I think the 
university should look to interests such as these 
co-ed dorm proposals as an aid in promoting 
campus residency. Student interest is present 
and the benefits are evident.

State of the Union 

By Jo Pease 

Dear Editor, 

We, an organized group of 
involved students, would like 
to commend the ad- 
ministration for its initiation 
and support of progressive 
trends here at Northwestern. 
As campus residents, we are 
particularly interested in 
housing policies and 
regulations, and applaud the 
innovations that we are en- 
joying in the facet of 
university life. The new 
liberities of women residents 
such as self-regulated hours, 
free overnight guests, and the 
absence of In-Out cards are 
evidences of real com- 
munication between students 
and concerned ad- 
ministrators. The establish- 
ment of Natchitoches Hall as a 
co-educational housing unit is 
even stronger support of the 
confidence the administration 
places in the student body. We 
would like to add our support 
to this concept of a co- 
educational living-learning 
center noting that it has 
proved advantageous in term 
more student freedom, in- 

creased student involvement, 
and decreased property 

Since this initial project of 
housing men and women 
students in different wings of 
the same dormitory has been 
deemed beneficial by students 
and administrators alike, we 
would like to suggest that the 
concept be expanded to in- 
clude other facilities which 
are structurally similar t<_ 
Natchitoches Hall. Both 
Varnado Hall and Caspari 
Hall offer themselves as 
potential facilities for co- 
educational living units. Both 
dormitories have east and 
west wings joined only by a 
first floor lobby and living 
room area, and both dor- 
mitories house only upper 
class students. The establish- 
ment of these two 
dorms as co-educational 
facilities would contribute to 
the progressive trend in 
university policies.

Minutes of SBA 

By unanimous approval last 
Tuesday night, the Union 
Board voted to endorse and 
support the adoption of a trial 
elective physical education 
program for all non-majors. 
The program, to be initiated in 
the spring of 1973, moves away 
from compulsory physical 
education courses and moved 
toward optional activity 
classes — classes that you can 
take because you want to, not 
because you have to. 

Students needs and in- 
terests are being considered: 
certainly, recogition should be 
given to those in the Depart- 
ment of Health, Physical 

Education and Recreation 
who have worked and planned 
for the benefit of Nor- 
thwestern students. It's 
progressive educators such as 
these that promote the 

It's now left to the students 
to support this program and 
the recreational activities it 
offers. The program will 
continue on a trial basis for 
two years subsequent to 
January, 1973. The success 
and continuation of the 
program will depend upon 
student participation. Support 
the program! It's designed 
for our benefit.!

Campus Beautification? 

"Everyone must have had a fantastic 

"Why do you say that?" 

"Well, first I had to zig-zag my way out of the 
parking lot this morning to miss all the broken 
beer bottles and then I slashed my best pair of 
moccasins on more broken glass when 1 tried to 
make it across campus to my 10 o'clock class. 
Someone HAD to have a great time emptying all 
those bottles." 

"I know what you mean. This campus does 
look pretty cluttered up." 

' "Did you know we have a campus 
beautification committee?" 

"What do they do?" 

"I'm not sure. The last thing I remember is 
something about clearing out Chaplain's Lake 
sometime last year." 

"I guess it didn't work. I was going to sign up 
for that canoeing course, but someone told me 
I'd have to turn over my canoe and swim around 
in that contaminated water. I'd rather die a 
natural death." 

"You know, after hearing an ecologist like 
LaMont Cole speak, maybe the students on that 
committee could get more involved with en- 
vironmental concerns. The trash on this campus 
is unreal." 

"What do you think those people feel campus 
beautification concerns?" 

"Judging from some of the trash barrels 
around here, they're probably concerned with 
painting all our ugly beat-up trash barrels a 
pretty purple and white." 

Election Plea 

This space is dedicated to those apathetic 
enough not to vote on November 7; due to your 
lack of interest your future is cancelled. 

Ii your excuse is your indecision or dislike of 
McGovern and Nixon, you must remember that 
the presidential outcome is not the only thing at 
stake. There are also congressional members 
and amendments to be voted on. 

Individual profiles of 
senators and representatives 
are being made available to 
the public in the form of the 
22,000 page Ralph Nader's 
Congress Project. 

The profiles vary in length 
from 20 to 40 pages. They 
include information about a 
member's positions on in- 
portant issues, floor votes on 
about 90 matters since the 
early 60's, votes in committee, 
his or her legislative interests, 
last campaign and opponent, 
supporters in Washington and 
at home, ratings by interest 
groups, and personal and 
political history. 

These profiles represent the 
efforts of more than 1,000 
people working in almost 
every congressional district, 
state capitol, and state as well 
as in Washington for all or 
part of a year. More than 500 
non-partisan volunteers with 
many different backgrounds 
and of many ages searched 
records of campaign con- 
tributions, and where 
possible, interviewed mem- 
bers' district office managers, 
last campaign opponents, 
party leaders, and community 
leaders. In Washington, ap- 
proximately 130 profile 
writers-including students, 
journalists, lawyers, and 
professors- pulled together 
the information gathered in 
the field with other data, 
conducted interviews with 
most of the members and their 
staffs with the aid of many 
others who served as editors, 
proof readers footnoters, 
researchers, and typists, 
produced profiles of every 
member of Congress except 
those retiring this year or 
defeated in primaries. 

No one profile can be, nor is 
intended to be, a complete 
examination of a member of 
Congress. Each is a begin- 
ning, a point of departure, for 
ordinary citizen who wants to 
know the facts and have some 
indication of what are the 
significant facts about his or 
her representatives in 
Washington. The profiles do 

not rate the members of 
Congress; they are not 
evaluative in purpose. 
Rather, they provide relevant 
information to serve as a tool- 
-but only one of many tools— 
for the concerned citizen to 
understand and to measure 
members of Congress against 
standards that citizens believe 
are significant. 

The Congress Project is 
donating complete sets of 
profiles of entire state 
delegations in Congress to 
more than 200 public libraries 
all over the country, so that 
the information contained in 
them will be directly available 
as soon as possible to as many 
people as possible. The 
Project representative at each 
news conference will be 
prepared to indicate which 
libraries in the area have been 
provided these sets. 

Individual profiles may be 
purchased through Grossman 
Publishers, P. O. Box 19281, 
Washintong, D. C. 20036 at 
$1.00 each, first class post paid 
(and 75 cents each for 30 to 49 
of one profile to one address; 
50 cents each for 50 or more of 
one to one address). Orders 
must specify names of 
members desired.

phony Orchestra in a classical children's concert Friday, 
Nov. 3 at 1 p. m. in the Fine Arts Auditorium. 

The concert is the first of the season for the symphony 
society, which has invited public and parochial schools in 
Natchitoches Parish to attend. 

Price said only 35 members of the 55-member orchestra 
will perform at this concert, which consists of three selec- 
tions, highlighted by Richard Cage's narration of - Peter and 
the Wolf," by Russian composer Prokofiev* 

Other selections for the one-hour concert are "Overture to 
Russian and Ludrr.illa," by another Russian composer, 
Glinka, and from the opera by the same name, and Virgil 
Thomson's "Acadian Songs and Dances" from the movie 
"Louisiana Story." 

According to Price, "Overture to Russian and Ludmilla" is 
a fairy tale selection, while "Acadian Songs and Dances" 
was written for an oil company film which told of oil coming 
to Louisiana. 

Last year more than 2,000 school children attended the 
once-a-year concert, and a like number is expected for this 
year's concert season opener. 

ROTC Travels

Nixon, McGovern Clash on November 

Tuesday < H-tober 31 VJ72 CUKu >JT SAl CE Page 3 

By Ronald Sanchez 

On November 7, an 
estimated 25 million newly- 
enfranchised young voters 
will have their first op- 
portunity to cast their ballots 
in a presidential election. 
Political analysts have 
predicted that their vote will 
be influential in determining 
the outcome of the 1972 
election, and thus, the political 
futures of Presidnet Richard 
M. Nixon and Senator George 

President Nixon, seeking re- 
election to his second term as 
Chief Executive, faces 
Democratic opposition in the 
more liberal candidacy of 
South Dakota Senator George 
McGovern. Pollsters agree 
that Nixon's strength going 
into the final week of cam- 
paigning points to a com- 
fortable victory for the 
California Republican. 

In a recent Newsweek 
survey, 49 percent of the 
electorate polled described 
Nixon as the "ideal choice" 
for the presidency, while only 
26 per cent gave McGovern 
the same vote of confidence. 
Apparently Nixon's esteem 
has risen during his four White 
House years; 45 per cent of 
those questioned said their 
opinion of him had increased 
during his tenure in office. 

But political polls have 
hisotrically had discrepan- 
cies in their predictions 
resulting from the time lag 
factor, the actual period of 
time extending from the poll 
taking to the release of the 
figures, and the inaccuracies 
involved in a random sam- 
pling of voters. Personal 
confrontations have also been 
judged more reliable than the 
telephone interview. 

The issues in this 1972 
election year have been varied 
and in some instances sub- 
dued. President Nixon, 
operating a methodical 

Issues '72 Arouse Subdued Voter Interest 

campaign, has the in- 
cumbent's advantage, while 
Senator McGovern has had to 
overcome both lack of support 
by party officials and the 
confusion and subsequent 
publicity over his initial vice 
presidential choice. 

Foreign Trips 

Following his highly 
publicized trips to the USSR 
and the Republic of China, 
Nixon suggested a potentially 
improved relationship bet- 
ween the U.S. and those two 
world powers. Though some 
experts claimed that Nixon's 
diplomatic venture was in 
essence a well-manuevered 
political ploy contrived in an 
election year, the trips 
heralded an improved foreign 
policy indicative of the Nixon 

Most Americans, even those 
favorable to the McGovern 
candidacy, rate the summit 
conferences as the major 
achievement of the Nixon 

The American public will 
long remember 1971 as the 
year when President Nixon 
initiated price and wage 
controls. This dramatic wage- 
and-price freeze, the first such 
plan instituted in this country 
during a time of peace, 
represented the President's 
concern over a drastic out- 
pouring of American dollars 
that caused a negative 
balance of payments, even- 
tually reaching a rate of $23 

Nixon in his economic 
reshuffle also imposed a 10 per 
cent surcharge on most im- 
ports and discontinued the 
exchange of gold for foreign- 
held American currency. 
Disregarding his long-held 
policy on government price 
control, Nixon adopted the 90- 
day plan to curb the nation's 
spiraling inflationary trend- 
begun under the preceeding 
Democratic administrations. 

Campus Colloquy 

By Daniel 

(At present, Dr. 
Moynihan is a mernber 
of the President's Science 
Advisory Committee.) 

On the occasion of being 
taken, with due Victorian 
solemnity, to view Niagra 
Falls, Oscar Wilde gazed for a 
moment, turned and 
remarked that they would 
have been more impressive if 
they flowed the other way. 

One could have the same 
view about Campus Colloquy. 
Here again is the professor 
talk at the students. 
"Colloquy" is from the Latin 
(and for that matter, the 
French ) and denotes above all 
else exchange of views. There 
is a penumbral association 
with the term "colloquial" 
with its implications of 
relaxed and informal ex- 
change. When do the students 
get to speak? 

I am serious in this question, 
and am not trying to please 
anybody in asking it. A major 
difficulty university 
professors have had in recent 
years is that of judging just 
what is student opinion and 
what are its sources. There 
are, of course, many opinions, 
just as there are many 
students. This reality was 
rather overwhelmed in the 
middle of the 1960s by the 
intense passions of what may 
have been a minority of 
student bodies, but which was 
nonetheless a minority that 
carried the majority with it 
as, for example, in the spring 
of 1970 when we experienced 
the first nationwide student 
strike over the Cambodian 

A good deal is known about 
this minority. (It does appear 
to be that.) Sociologists such 
as Seymour Martin Lipset 
have studied them, and they 
"ave not failed to study 
themselves. The picture of the 
Ihest" students, from the 

P. Moynihan 

"best" families, in the ' best" 
colleges and universities is 
well established. But why this 
elite group should have turned 
against so many of the in- 
stitutions and values of the 
society just when they did is 
not nearly so easy a question. 
The presumption that this was 
a response to war abroad and 
injustice at home is a rea- 
sonable one, and most of us 
would share these elite views 
on these specific questions. 
What troubles social scientists 
is the fact that such similar 
outbursts of anger and rage 
occurred in nations as 
disparate as France and 
Japan in almost the same 
period. The same groups 
seem to have been involved, 
the same tactics, much of the 
same outcomes, but totally 
different issues. 

But what of all the others? Is 
the great majority of 
American students still 
following the American 
pattern of moving up from one 
generation to another, still 
satisfied that things will be 
better for them than they have 
been for their parents, still 
pleased at the prospect? 

No one seems to know, and 
you won't say. For years 
social scientists have known 
about "the circulation of 
elites", a term we use to 
describe the replacement of 
enfeebled and disillusioned 
ruling classes with new and 
more vigorous groups for 
whom that position still holds 
attraction. Many of us suspect 
that is what is going on today, 
even if those involved are only 
marginally aware of what is 
going on. I walk about the 
Harvard Libraries at night : it 
is there, there for the eye to 
see. But no one talks in a 
library, and one is never sure. 
When will those new men and 
new women break their 

Though the domestic crisis 
has not emerged as the central 
campaign issue, it nonetheless 
represents a definite liability 
in Nixon's re-election plans. 
Unemployment in the summer 
of 1972 stood at more than one 
million jobless individuals, a 
rise of some two per cent from 
the January, 1969 figure, 

Vietnam Issue 

In regard to the United 
States' controversial in- 
volvement in Southeast Asia, 
the Nixon administration has 
fought for a withdrawal of 
American servicemen while 
not abandoning the South 
Vietnamese government. U.S. 
military forces in Indochina 
numbered 543,000 at the 
beginning of Nixon's term in 
1969; by July, 1972, the figure 
had decreased to 46,500. 
Airpower has been stepped up 
during the Nixon ad- 
ministration, with a con- 
siderable bombing surge on 
North Vietnam. 

While combat has expanded 
into the neighboring nations of 
Cambodia and Laos, 
President Nixon's conferences 
with Chinese and Russian 
leaders have reportedly been 
an attempt to limit escalation 
of the war. 

Vietnamization plans, 
whereby South Vietnamese 
troops replace the U.S. 
military forces, have been 
started successfully under 
Nixon's direction and 
casualities have been 
significantly decreased. 

The defense budget for the 
fiscal year of 1973 was initially 
set at $83.5 billion, but due to 
the increased bombing ac- 
tivity in North Vietnam, Nixon 
upped the figure to $86 billion. 
During his administration 
Nixon has tried to maintain 
superiority in the arms race 
under the sanctions of the 
Strategic Arms Limitation 
Treaty (SALT). 

Foreign military assistance 
has increased in recent years 
to approximately $6 billion 
annually, much of which goes 
to the undeclared 
Vietnam war. 

Nixon, upon taking office in 
1969, appointed a commission 

to investigate the feasibility of 
an all-%'olunteer army. Asking 
for a two-year extention to the 
draft law in 1971, Nixon 
supported a substantial pay 
'n crease for servicemen 
and pointed to a time of "zero 
draft call" inductions. Size of 
U.S. armed forces has been 
reduced by some one third 
since Nixon has been in office. 

revamped image. 

Party leaders have all but 
conceded that a strong Co- 
ngressional showing by 
Democrats will salvage what 
promises to be a Nixon land- 
slide. McGovern has failed to 
garner the needed internal 
support to insure a successful 
run at the presidency, and 
even with the addition of R. 

The Selective Service Act, 
signed and supported by 
President Nixon, reduced the 
period of draft eligibility from 
seven years to one year and 
provided that draft selections 
be determined by a random 
selection of numbers and 
corresponding birthdates. 

The McGovern Challenge 

Senator McGovern, a 
decided underdog with the 
electoral votes of his native 
South Dakota and the 
predominately black 
Washington D.C. area his only 
cinch wins, emerged as the 
Democratic party's fron- 
trunner in Miami by 
promising the party a 

Sargent Shriver to the ticket,a 
faint reminder of the Kennedy 
dynasty, McGovern 's support 
lies mainly with the youth and 
black votes. 

Widely known for his 
steadfast opposition to the 
Indochina War, McGovern has 
proposed a complete with- 
drawal of troops within 90 
days of his possible 
inauguration. But many 
voters have interpreted this 
promise as an extremist, 
irrational plan. 

Paris, and Saigon on peace 
feeling missions, McGovern 
said if certain criteria were 
followed, the peace formula 
could be implemented. 

Calling for a sizable 
decrease in the military 
spending budget, McGovern 
suggests as an alternate 
budget a $54.8 billion ex- 
penditure by 1975. He has also 
consistently voted to abolish 
or reduce spending for the 
ABM system and other 
defense projects. Military 
personnel in Europe would be 
cut by one-third under 
McGovern and air power 
would be completely with- 
drawn . from Southeast Asia. 

More Jobs 

McGovern has expressed 
the desire to utilize the money 
diverted from military action 
and create more civilian jobs. 
This would be possible, he 
contends, because military 
spending is one of the least 
efficient ways of maintaining 

He has also proposed a $10 
billion investment in job- 
creating enterprises, 
primarily in housing, tran- 
sportation, environmental 
protection, and public service 

Although McGovern hoped 
to capitalize on Nixon's strict 
constructionist appointees to 
the Supreme Court, the four 
men selected by Nixon after 
the earlier Haynsworth and 
Carswell rejections have 
come under little Democratic 

While claiming to have a 
long-term working 
relationship with the labor 
movement, McGovern has not 
found the avid support in 
organized labor traditionally 
afforded Democratic can- 
didates. AFL-CIO president 
George Meany initiated an 
effort to prevent McGovern 's 

nomination at the convention 
in Miami and then gave 
McGovern a begrudging 

McGovern has gathered 
support from other labor 
forces, including the United 
Auto Workers. 

Possessing a congressional 
voting record that has con- 
sistently advocated advanced 
educational measures, 
McGovern has expressed a 
desire for expanded 
elementary and secondary 
education programs. He 
believes in a partial federally- 
supported public education 
system and a national 
educational policy. 

A supporter of 
desegregation plans as 
directed in the Democratic 
Platform, McGovern 
recognizes the need for 
equalization of education 

Strategy Plans 

The 1972 presidential 
election has not created the 
emotional impact charac- 
teristic of past campaigns. 
Due primarily to President 
Nixon's overwhelming 
popularity and the possibility 
of a landslide vote similar to 
former President Johnson's 
victory over Senator Barry 
Goldwater in 1964, the election 
has produced little com- 
petitive activity. Even the 
usual campaign paraphenalia 
such as bumper stickers 
and buttons, is conspicuously 
at a low level. 

Describing Senator 
McGovern as a man who "will 
fight for effective and 
necessary reforms in 
American social, political and 
economic institutions," the 
New York Times endorsed the 
Democratic nominee. 

Both candidates are con- 
centrating their efforts on the 
eight major states 
necessary for election. These 

states, with an accumulated 
total of 228 of the 270 needed 
electoral votes, are being 
courted by Presidnet Nixon 
and Senator McGovern as the 
determining factors in the 
race. No candidate in recent 
history has ever won the race 
for the White House without 
carrying at least four of the 

Perhaps the most in- 
teresting sidelight of election 
'72 , the much- publicized 
Watergate affair, has involved 
GOP leaders in a bizarre tale 
of political sabotage. 

The FBI has stated that as 
many as 25 Republican agents 
were possibly involved in the 
early-morning break-in of the 
Democratic National Com- 
mittee headquarters. Reasons 
for the cloak-and-dagger 
effort, considering President 
Nixon's substantial lead in all 
major polls, remain confused. 

One possible explanation 
given was that the Watergate 
incident was planned to create 
confusion and disorientation 
at the Democratic convention 
and to further widen a party 

Another aspect of 
the Republican chicanery 
involved reported funds 
directed from the Finance 
Committee to Re-elect the 
President to a private bank 
account of one of the accused 
Watergate violators. The 
Justice Department is 
currently inveJ ' .r charges of 
misuses of ^"-^paign funds

Offices 's guidelines recently 
setdown to govern campaign 

Election '72 will be finalized 
in just one week. The issues, 
the candidates, the im- 
plications, and the past per- 
formances have all been 
presented to the American 
public. All that remains is 
their decisions.

The purpose of the 
Placement Department is to 
help NSU students secure jobs 
before graduation and even

Galloway noted that "it's now 
an employers' market." Due 
to this fact it has become 
increasingly harder for the 
college graduate to find 
suitable employment.

becoming of senior 
classification, to come to the

then up to the job-seeking

important that the student

Louisiana voters will choose 
from among Democratic 
nominee Bennett Johnston, 
Republican Ben C. Toledano, 
and former governor John J. 
McKeithen, running as an 
independent, for the state's 
Senate seat in the November 7 
General Election. 

Complicated by the sudden 
death of incumbent Senator 
Allen J. Ellender, the senate 
race has stirred considerable 
interest among state 
politicians and the general 
public. Though most polls 
show Johnston with a 
decided edge, few are willing 
to discount the strong and 
growing challenge of 
McKeithen and the possibility 
of a large Toledano turnout in 
what is shaping up to be a 
Republican election year. 

Johnston, a Shreveport 
lawyer and former state 
senator, is running on a 
platform based on adequate 
representation for Louisiana 
in Congress. In statements 
made at NSU political 
assemblies, Johnston stressed 
his persuasive ability and 
salesmanship as key assets to 
pass favorable legislation in 
the Senate. 

Johnston, who ran an un- 
successful attempt at cap- 
turing the Democratic 
nomination in last year's 
gubernatorial race, supports 
the construction of a north- 
south toll road and a favorable 
settlement for the state in the

maintained a grass roots 
support with Louisiana 
politicians and voters. 

McKeithen contends that he 
has never been accused of 
personal misconduct or 
malfeasance in office. 

Seizing the opportunity to 
enter the race after the death 
of the seemingly invincible 
Fllender. McKeithen stressed 
his position as an independent 

to disregard party affiliations 
and work for the good of the 
state. He had announced 
retirement plans after leaving 
the governor's office last May. 

The third man in the race, 
New Orleans attorney Ben C. 
Toledano, has capitalized on 
President Nixon's apparent 
strength in the state to sway 
the traditional Democratic 
electorate. The Republican 
State Central Committee 
replaced their original 
senatorial candidate with the 
better known Toledano after 
the political furor created by 
Ellender 's death. 

Toledano has claimed that a 
Republican senator on the 
state's delegation to 
Washington would be an in- 
valuable asset in a Republican 
administration. He has 

repeatedly made reference to 
his close association with 
President Nixon in hopes of 
capturing the anti-McGovcrn 

The senatorial race, 
perhaps the most interesting 
state-wide contest in recent 
Louisiana history, was 
clouded by the Democratic 
Party's refusal to reopen the 
qualifying deadline for can- 
didates after Ellender's death 
and the subsequent con- 
troversy that evolved. The 
opportunistic entries of the 
late-comers in a race 
.seemingly decided after the 
incumbent's death further 
threw a pall over the election.

Hot Sauce Questions 

Why aren't the pep rallies held in front of 
the Student Union anymore? 

Roddy Dye who is on the Spirit Committee said that some 
ecology minded people complained that the grass was being 
trampled on by the enthusiastic participants. He also said 
that the cheerleaders protested that the crowds and the 
uneven ground made the cheers difficult to perform. Dye, 
however, said tht he personally feels that the front of the 
Student Union is the appropriate place for the rallies 
because it is the center of the campus. 

Why doesn't the band play at the pep 

Because they do. Dr. Hunt of the music department said 
that a portion of the band has played at every pep rally. 

When will the Potpourri pictures go on 

The pictures will go on sale on November 8 from eight 
o'clock to twelve o'clock and from one o'clock to four 
o'clock. On November 9, the hours will be the same but on

Nation's Greeks Undergo 
Change On College Campuses 

By Monty Hoyt 
Christian Science Monitor 
News Service 

Across the United States, 
social fraternities for men and 
women undergraduates have 
fallen on hard times. 
Chapters are closing ; the size 
of the once-dominant role of 
fraternity members on many 
campuses has been diluted. 
Only the extension of Greek- 
letter societies to new cam- 
puses has kept membership 

There are many causes for 
the crisis: the "anti- 
establishment" mood of 
students in recent years, the 
advent of a more independent 
and sometimes apathetic 
student body, competition 
from liberalized housing 
policies for university dor- 
mitories and student options 
for off-campus apartment 

Today these groups are at a 

Although fraternities, 
generally, have given almost 
total autonomy to their local 
chapters, the sororities are 
still heavily dictated to by 
their national headquarters 
and alumni members. Some of 
them are still listing dos and 
don'ts for students. 

Still others don't agree at 

"As I would interpret 
strength .. I would say that 
fraternities and sororities are 
as strong as ever. They are a 
lot more desirable as places 
to live than 10 years ago. They 
are helpful to students in 

adjusting to college life. They 
promote academic tone and 
curiosity. And they provide 
fitting recreational and social 
programs for today's needs." 
comments Northwestern 
University's (in Evanston, 
111.) dean of students, James 

The newest generation of 
first-year students, reaching a 
record of nearly 2 million at 
registration lines this fall, are 
taking a discerning look at 
fraternities, asking: What do 
they offer me as an in- 
dividual? Is it worth the added 

Percentage-wise few 
students are saying yes as the 
number joining fraternities 
continues to drop off on many 
campuses, while college 
enrollments climb. 

Undaunted by failing 
campus popularity, many 
fraternity men and women 
see the challenges of the past 
few years as a healthy sign. 
"It has forced us to change, to 
look within our organizations 
and redefine what we have to 
offer." comes the general 

Fraternities look quite 
healthy on paper. There are 91 
national men's and women's 
social fraternities with some 
7,000 chapters on more than 
600 college campuses. The 
number continues to grow as 
the active chapters have 
climbed by more than 1,000 in 
the last decade. (This, in part, 
masks the 10 per cent or

greater decline in mem-

active chapters within the last 
three years.) 

Ail totaled, there are more 
than 4 million "Greeks" in the 
United States and Canada 
today, either as active un- 
dergraduate members or 
alumni. When the professional 
fraternities, recognition 
societies, and honor societies 
that round out the Greek-letter 
system are added, the 
numbers swell to more than 
20,000 chapters and 10 million 
members. (The latter figure is 
somewhat misleading because 
of the frequent overlapping of 

This fall, more than 150,000 
freshmen went through "rush 
week" on their respective 
campuses. This period at the 

beginning of the college term 
gives new students an op- 
portunity to visit the frater- 
nity and sorority houses, 
meeting their members and 
determine which group, if 
any, they want to win. 

New students going through 
rush are finding a number of 
evolutionary changes in the 
operation of fraternities, not 
the least of which is the rush 
system itself. 

"But while the system of 
operation — the tangibles — is 
changing, the intangibles the 
fundamental beliefs on which 
each fraternity was founded, 
have remained unchanged for 
100 years," asserts Jack L.

The Demons will roll into 
Lake Charles this Saturday to 
clash with the McNeese 
Cowboys, America's fourth- 
ranked small college team 
according to the October 19, 
A P College Poll. 

Due to a glaring oversight 
on my part, the story on this 
game ran in last week's 
Current Sauce, one week 
ahead of schedule. Since then I 
have had time to think things 
over. Upon seeing the light, I 
have come to draw entirely 
different conclusions from 
those I arrived at last week. 

Let there be no mistake 
about it, McNeese is a very 
tough team with more all-star 
candidates than I care to 

Let's review what we said 
last week. 

Greg Davis has a career 
total of 142 completions out of 
301 attempts for 2,102 yards 
and 14 touchdowns. Davis also 
rushed for 27 yards and has a 
total offense mark of 2,111 

The other returning field 
general is Allen Dennis, who 
has had 107 completions of 209 
attempts for 1,493 yards. He 
has amassed, prior to the '72 
season, nine TD's 402 yards 
rushing, and a total offense 
standard of 1,895 yards. 

Also back with the offensive 
unit is James Moore, a tight 
end who has caught 47 passes 
for 679 yards and five touch- 
downs in his career. 

Tailback Barry Boudreaux 
has returned, with his career 
rushing average of 4.2 yards 
per carry. He has caught eight 
passes for 109 yards. 

Don Soileau, a fullback, is 
still with the Cowboys. He has 
a career rushing average of 
about 3.9 yards, has scored 
three TD's, and caught two 
passes for seven yards. 

Boudreaux tallied 421 yards 
in 1971; Soileau had 324; 
fullback Marshall Higgin- 
botham had 178 and tailback 
Enos Hicks had 354. 

The only all-star candidate 
on the offensive line is guard 
Buddy Console. Most of the 
rest of the line is relatively 

Billy Blakeman is still at the 
defensive back slot. Blakeman 
had 17 interceptions for 183 
yards and 47 tackles in his 

Carios Medrano will be 
placekicking again. Last year 
he hit on ten field goals of 22 
attempts and 44 extra points 
out of 46 tries. 

At the linebacker position 
the blue and gold CowDoys 
have Larry Rawlinson, a bad 
man who downed 71 opponents 
last year to lead the team in 
that category. 

All this information is pretty 
impressive to be sure, but the 
Demons won't be sitting back, 
watching the Pokes run the 

The NSU defensive unit, 
prior to the heartrending State 
Fair Game, ranked ninth in 
the nation, allowing a mere 
8.7 points per game. This 
while the team was scoring an 
average of 16.3. The Cowboys 
won't be shrugging off the 
Demons as they have some of 
their opponents. 

This contest has been 
designated as a Gulf South 
Conference game and Nor- 
thwestern has to win to retain 
their top dog status in the 

A great weight will be on the 
shoulders of the NSU secon- 
dary. John Kelly and John 
Dilworth have been doing a 
commendable job in the 
defensive backfield, as has 

Travis Smith. They had really 
better be ready Saturday, 
though because James Moore 
is considered one of the best 
receivers around. 

Our infantry attack is to be 
lauded and our passing game 
is capable of coming through 
with the big plays. Randy 
Walker's kicking game speaks 
for itself. 

When all is said, the 
Cowboys are still the second 
nationally-ranked team NSU 
has played, and easily the 

But if the Demons played 
against Tech, there will be no 
stopping them. In other words, 
a psyched-up Demon team 
will be invincible. 

If Doherty's lads want this 

one bad enough, and I'm sure 
they do, they can have things 

pretty much their own way. As 
I said last week, this will be a 
good game no matter what 

the outcome. I, for one, will be 
expecting the Demons to 

wear the laurel wreaths home 
this weekend. 

Thinclads To Compete 
In NCAA Championship 

Northwestern 's unbeaten Friday when the Demon 
cross-country team ran its harriers faded three Texas 
final regular season meet teams in Dallas. 

Camp fire 

The Louisiana Legislature 
has pulled some good ones in 
the past, but in my opinion the 
one that tops the cake is their 
recent decision to require all 
gun hunters on game 
management areas and 
private land to wear at least 
400 square inches of Hunter 
Orange. I often wonder if this 
measure was taken to protect 
the hunters or if it was in- 
tended to provide safety for 
the deer themselves. I don't 
know what learned men say on 
the subject but to me it is hard 
enough to hunt now without 
having to wear neon lights. 
Due to the stiff penalty of $100 
fine or 90 days for violating 
this law it seems that they are 
serious about enforcing it so I 
urge everyone to abide by it 
until someone gains his senses 
in Baton Rouge. 

This deer-hunting season, 
which begins Saturday, a 
hunter will not be required to 
tag the animal after the kill 
except in the event that the 
carcass is divided between a 
party of hunters, in which case 
each piece must be marked 
showing the license number of 
the hunter who bagged the 
deer. The limit of one deer per 
day and five per season still 
stands, though. 

As mentioned earlier, the 
gun hunting season starts 
Saturday and continues 
through November 15 for still 
hunting only. Then on 
November 18, dog season 
begins and ends on December 
3 and resumes on December 
26. Finally, on January 7 the 
deer season closes for the 
year. These dates apply to 
Area 2 which includes Nat- 
chitoches parish. 

Charles Hinson of the 
Louisiana Wildlife and 
Fisheries Commission said 
that he personally feels that 
the deer population in 
Kisatchie National Forest to 
be pretty fair, meaning about 
the same as last year. He also 

by Ricky McGee 

said, however, that there is 

about a 4 to 5 percent increase 
in hunters every year. 

I have been out scouting 
around this year and have 
seen numerous tracks in 
Kisatchie so I imagine I will 
make plans to open the first 
day by being situated on a 
good crossing in that forest. 

For everyone wishing to try 
their luck this year they may 
purchase their hunting license 
and tags at the Natchitoches 
Parish Sheriff's Office for a 
total of $4.

ms and is said ' "Paying rock music with acoustical

copy the rock sound." 

But the natural blend of Argir's sensitive

{ Betsy Bernard and Lamprey's bass playing 
out the musical carbon of the moods they 
sing, makes a singularly moving style. 

A review they received from the University 
of North Carolina after their performance 
there stated that they had never seen a group 
before with "the depth, the desire to com- 
municate that the Argir group brought with 
rare eloquence." 

Argir writes the group's material, leaning 
heavily on introspective themes and topical 
subjects. Betsy Bernard, well known in 
Colorado and Texas as "the Denver Thrush," 
is a traditional folk-singer, specializing in old 
English ballads.

"Earlier, we did productions from the

Dr. Black also said "J.B." is a fine piece of

toured with a minimum of effort and ex- 
pense," he added. "There are a variety of 
demanding roles, about five or six, and this is

that will be nearly cut in half this year. A limit 
of approximately 192 pages has been set or 
this year's edition. Color for the yearbook will 
be in the form a tinting process for each page. 

This reduction of volume will cause other 
phases, not necessarily to suffer, but to be 
changed. Class pictures will be reduced in 
size. The sports section will consist of 20 to 22 
pages in comparison to last year's 60 pages. 
The faculty section will be cut in half. These

The payment of the seven dollars at NSU is 
compulsory, but this by no means is unique. 

Other Louisiana colleges and universities 
either charge approximately the same as 
NSU for yearbooks, but also charge 
organizations or charge all students more for 

LSU students pay $7.50 for their yearbook, 
but other income makes up for the difference. 
Organizations pay $90 for one page and $160 
for a double page. Also taken into con- 
sideration is the volume of students attending 

In the previously mentioned survey of over 
200 colleges there were few exceptions to the 
compulsory charge. Only full time students 
pay this fee at NSU. Part-time students are 
not required to do so and must order their 
yearbooks in advance. 

Other deficits are caused by the loss taken 
when class pictures are sold. Over the past 
two years there has been an average loss of 
$1,000 per year. The pictures are sold to the 
student in an effort to regain some of the 
money spent in their production. 

Again this fall the proposed increase will be 
put to a student vote. A recent SBA meeting 
voted to hold the election in approximately 
three weeks or the week after the 
Thanksgiving holidays. The increase 
proposal will still be for only three dollars. 

According to Ezra Adams, Potpourri ad- 
visor and head of the Journalism Depart- 
ment, the increase of three dollars should 
prove sufficient barring any drastic price 
increases in the area of production. 

The Potpourri staff feel that this year's 
edition will be a good one and well 
representative of NSU. There will certainly 
be no less effort on their part in insure that the 
quality will be the best available.

First Concert Relates 
Many Moods Styles 

The Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony 
Orchestra, under the direction of Robert 
Price, will present its first major Symphony 
Society concert of the 1972-73 season 
November, 10 at 8 p.m., in the Fine Arts 

For the first concert, Price has selected five 
pieces of music which represent different 
styles and moods of the composers. This was 
done to add contrast to the concert. 

The highlight of the concert comes last, 
when the 55-member symphony performs 
Rachmaninoff's very brilliant and flashy 
"Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini," which 
features Mrs. Constance Knox Carroll of 
Centenary College as piano soloist. Mrs. 
Carroll has played with the Rapides Parish 
Symphony Orchestra and the entire concert 
was built around this piece of music, which 
she selected for her piano solo. 

For a curtain opener the Natchitoches- 
Northwestern Symphony Orchestra will play 
Glinka's exciting operatic overture "The 
Overture to Russian and Ludmilla" prior to 
playing "The Karelia Suito" by Sibelius. 

The piece by Sibelius is in three movements 
which are the brassy "Intermezzo; the 
"Ballade" that features the percussion and 
woodwinds in a somber movement; and the 
stately "Alia Marcia." 

For his third selection of the concert, Price 
will conduct the symphony in a folk-laden 
piece by American composer Virgil Thomson. 
Written as background music for a 
promotional film for an oil company, 
Thomson's "Acadian Songs and Dances" for 
the movie "Louisiana Story" is in seven 
movements: "Sadness," "Pappa's Tune," "A 
Squeeze Box." All seven movements 
represent different moods. 

Just before the symphony gets into the 
flashy piano solo by Mrs. Carroll, the mood of 
music is the quiet, peaceful and pastoral 
sounds from Debussy's "Afternoon of a 

Eight freshmen musicians who won Sym- 
phony Society string scholarships to Nor- 
thwestern will make their debut with the 
Natchitoches-Northwestern Symphony Or- 
chestra November 10, which is the official 
beginning of the symphony's seventh season. 

The young musicians, who won string 
scholarships through auditions at Nor- 
thwestern, are Sylvia Kosmitis, Yvonne 
Burns, Judy Clark and Tonia Wimberly, 
Nancy Whitfield, Paul Grappe, Cynthia 
Echenhofer, and Jak Trevino. 

Beginning her last year with the symphony 
is senior Elaine Proctor, a Symphony Society 
scholarship winner from Shreveport. 

Campus Security Wins 
Unscheduled Track Meet 

Raymond Stewart, a 22 year-old former 
Northwestern student is out on a $300 ap- 
pearance bond after being apprehended on 
the campus last week for writing hot checks. 

Acting on a tip from a taxi driver, Campus 
Security officers Joseph Delphin and R. L. 
Colvard entered the room in Rapides dor- 
mitory in which the suspect was staying and 
proceeded to place him in custody. Then, as 
Colvard was making a phone call, Stewart 
suddenly charged out the door, down the 
stairs and out the back door. Delphin followed 
in hot pursuit. After chasing the suspect about 
50 yards in the marshy terrain around the 
dorm, Delphin made a flying tackle and 
pinned Stewart to the ground, as Delphin 
described it, "right in a big mudhole." 
Needless to say, they were both soaked, but 
this time he didn't get away. Later, Chief 
Hyams of the city police came and boarded 

Stewart in the parish jail. 

Incidentally, Joseph Delpin was last year's 
cross country champion of the Thanksgiving 
Classic held here in Natchitoches. The year 
before, he was the 100 yard winner. Delphin 
commented, "He should have known that 
before he started running."

Door Of Communication Open 
To Students With Initiative 

Dear Editor, 

The SBA's recent decision to 
go ahead and join the 
Louisiana Students 
Association came only after a 
great deal of debate and 
consideration. (LSA is an 
incorporated organization 
formed to represent all higher 
education students in 
Louisiana, on a state level, 
concerning social and 
academic matters. The 
number of votes a school has 
is determined by its 

I commend those SBA of- 
ficers who cared enough to 
attend the last LSA meeting 
(Roddy Kye, Steve McGee, 
Ronnie Grappe and Lindsey 
Torbett) to learn more about it 
before they gave their final 

Now that the decision has 
been made to join LSA, I wish 
the SBA all the luck in the 
world in working with this 

College students are great players of games. 
They will try ingenius plans to attain a desired 
goal. Some students feel that living off campus is 
one of these goals. Before they try this I would 
only hope that they are familiar with the con- 
sequences they will face if they are caught. 

All students desiring to live off campus are 
required to fill out an application stating their 
reasons for wanting to live off campus. This 
must be done two weeks prior to the up-coming 
SEMESTER. Their reasons are reviewed by the 
off-campus housing committee made up of six 
students and three staff members. This com- 
mittee is bound by rules set by the State Board of 
Education. They then accept or reject an ap- 
plicant's application. 

If a student does not turn in an application, but 
lives off campus without approval, he is 
breaking a university rule as stated in the North- 
western catalogue (page 48), and is subject to 
disciplinary action, which may include 
suspension or disciplinary probation, and the 
student will be required to move back on cam- 

The housing committee does not have a special 
committee which checks student's addresses nor 
do they comb over apartment resident lists. 
They learn of unauthorized off-campus residents 

through townmerchants trying to reach students Citizens TJro-pH T« V«t« 
for different reasons (bad checks, etc) , through ^ ltlzens Urged to Vote 
campus security incident reports involving in- 
cidents off campus where a student gives his off- 
campus address, and just by names being 
dropped in the housing offices. 

Students should also be aware that in cases 
where commuting and financial and medical 
hardships are concerned, the committee will 
most probably require documented proof, as a 
letter from ones parents or a statement from 
ones doctor. 

The off-campus housing committee can only 
require a student to move back on campus 
Further disciplinary action is referred to either 
the Dean of Men or the Dean of Women, as the 
case may be. 

A student may then submit an application. If 
refused he can appeal to the Dean of Students. If 
the Dean of Students rejects it the student can 
then! appeal to the President of the university. 
After this, if still disapproved, the student can 
take his case to the State Board of Education. 

The State Board of Education allows three 
main reasons for off-campus living as medical 
hardships, financial hardships and status such as 
veterans, married students, previously married 
students, and students who would find it hard to 
adjust to campus living due to age, self support 
and other factors. I urge students to check the 
catalogue for off-campus residency 
requirements and to understand the con- 
sequences of the willfull or negligent breaking of 
university rules. 

group. I think they will need it. 
Hopefully the future will 
prove me wrong, but it will 
take a lot more than just 
crossing fingers. 

LSA has hardly showed any 
kind of adequate performance 
in the past, especially con- 
cerning how they spent last 
year's dues. Perhaps this will 
be the year they show 
themselves more effective in 
representing student views 
before state officials and 

I would hate to see another 
wasted year and more wasted 
battles. I disagree with joining 
LSA another year, but SBA 
senators have had an op- 
portunity to see the new LSA 
group in action and perhaps 
there is some hope. Good 
luck, SBA. 

Ms. Editor, 

The recent situations at 
Gr ambling, Southern, SUNO 
centered around student 
demands for change in respect 
to greater student par- 
ticipation in administrative 
making, etal. 

At Northwestern students 
and administrators have been 
working together for change 
for quite some time. Perhaps 
not as overtly to some, yet in 
respect to recent dormitory 
regulation changes this 
originated with students and 
was finalized by ad- 
ministrative approval. 

Now with the swing towards 
making the NSU campus a 
"living learning concept" a 
reality in respect to dormitory 
living, we find that opposition 
is not against change in favor 
of tradition, but rather the 
changes that are being made 
are not drastic enough for 

Understandably to some 
this may well be the case in 
view of the maturity that has 
been exemplified by the 

Dorothy Jarzabek responsible attitude taken on- which 

by our students in utilizing 
their rights as adults to make 
use of self-regulating dorm 
hours. Yet, in the same case 
have we forgotten that we 
achieved these changes 
through a series of steps 
leading to change? 

Some say the coed dorm 
concept is no different than 
being isolated in a segregated 
facility with the only dif- 
ference being a common 
lobby. Granted, to some this is 
not realistic, asking very 
logical questions can be 
appreciated by all especially 
if the change effects you. Yet 
the way I view our in- 
volvement here at Nor- 
thwestern is not that I feel we 
are not getting enough, but 
rather every step in the 
change that we make is 
towards the finalization of a 
goal to make NSU something 
more than a place to hang 
one's hat for four years. 

Architecturally we are 
faced with many problems 
that influence the degree to 
we can make our 

dormitories coed. Another 
point area that needs to be 
considered are those students 
that would prefer to have the 
option of maintaining his or 
her privacy. These and many 
other problems exist. 

The point that I would like to 
make is that we are changing. 
There cannot be a return to 
the archaic situation that we 
experienced only a short year 
ago and to facilitate the 
change demands the total 
involvement of all students to 
take an active participation in 
that process. 

To become involved in this 
requires all students with 
various points of views to 
contact as well as come in 
contact with the appropriate 
committee working in behalf 

of students. In this case ^

History Dictates Political Involvement 

By Rick Mitz 

Success Story 

Throughout our nation's 
history, the South 's record in 
the area of voting rights and 
minority political par- 
ticipation has been far from 
perfect. The South has been 
most distinguished by its 
neglect of one of the 
paramount values in a 
democracy-the full, equitable 
extension of the franchise. 

Many college and high 
school students may be too 
young to remember the great 
struggle of black people 
during the last two decades. 
No one remembers Lamar 
Smith of Brookhaven, Miss., 
who was killed in broad 
daylight in front of the county 

courthouse or Rev. George W. 
Lee who was slain in Belzoni, 
Miss., for urging blacks to 
register during the 1950's. 

Few people remember 
Herbert Lee, a representative 
of the Student Non-Violent 
Coorinating Committee 
(SNCC), who was shot to 
death in a little town whose 
surname is the bulwark of our 
democracy-Liberty, Miss. 

Shot down from ambush in 
front of his home, Medgar W. 
Evers may be remembered by 
a few because his brother 
Charles, the mayor of 
Fayette, Miss., is a visible 
symbol of the goals for which 
he died. 
Very few remember James 

Chaney and his white co- 
workers, Michael Schwerner 
and Andrew Goodman, who 
were beaten, shot and buried 
inside a dam in Philadelphia, 

The afternoon of April 4, 
1968, is remembered by many 
because one of our nation's 
great moral leaders, Rev. Dr. 
Martin Luther King, Jr., 
scrificed his life in Memphis 
crusading for justice. But how 
many remember his role in 
the Selma March that brought 
about the Voting Rights Act of 
1965 and guaranteed every 
black citizen's right to vote? 

In the past, many people 
have died in the struggle to 
bring about social change and

Quality vs. Quantity 

Rising prices, quantity, and selection of 
student union cafeteria food has brought 
negative comment from NSU students. 

In an interview with co-owner Robert Lucky, it 
was learned that rising prices have resulted from 
rising food supplier costs and wage increases for 
workers. Night banquets held in the student 
union also cause the owners to pay their workers 
overtime. Lucky also stated that the cafeteria 
prices were lower than town prices. 

Lucky justified the quantity of food in each 
serving by stating his interest in serving only top 
quality food to students. As an example, he said 
that the chicken fried steaks were breaded by his 
own workers. They were not the commercial 
frozen breaded-type steaks. Lucky also said that 
he looked more to other colleges as a com- 
parison for student union cafeteria prices. Other 
colleges charge tax on their drinks NSU's 
student union does not charge tax on drinks; it 
absorbs them. He also stated that syrup, sugar, 
cream and milk supplier costs have risen sine< 
last summer. 

As for the selection, Lucky stated that he could 
not see why these complaints were being made 
He said that four meats were served each day 
and of these four, the meat repeated in one week 
was the chicken fried steak . The only reason this 
meat was served daily was due to its popularity, 
he said. 

The union cafeteria is an independent business 
which leases the union space from NSU. 

"In order to stay here we have to make a 
legitimate profit." Lucky stated, "We are now 
making less money than the first year we were 
here," he added. Lucky and co-owner Harold 
McCain have leased the cafeteria since the 
opening of the student union. They had 
previously had their cafeteria in the old student 
union building. The college had at one time ran 
the cafeteria, but Lucky and McCain were asked 
to take it over because the college could not 
operate it successfully. 

Lucky stressed that he was open to discussion 
with any student or faculty member having 
questions concerning the cafeteria. 

If the cafeteria owners feel that their objective 
is to provide a service to Northwestern students, 
I feel that the owners should keep atuned to 
students financial capabilities and contrive 
means of giving the students the maximum 
quantity of food without lowering food quality to 
a drastically low level.

a new social order in the 
South. The struggle goes on 
even today as black people, 
poor people, and other 
minorities must overcome 
fear, intimidation and 
ignorance in order to march 
down to the courthouse,, to 
register and vote. 

It is no mere coincidence that 
the South in comparison to the 
rest of the country has a 
greater percentage of non- 
voters than it has voters. To 
a large degree, this voting 
record can be attributed to a 
disproportionate number of 
young people, poor people, 
blacks, American Indians and 
Chicanos in the South 's non- 
voting population. 

Politics or the acquisition of 
political . power has 
historically been one of the 
greatest weapons of social 
change. Young people, poor 
people, and minorities have 
been groups with the greatest 
stake in social change, yet 
have failed to make full use of 
the basic mechanism for 
bringing about change: the 
VOTE! Having people 
registered to vote is only 
potential power; getting 
people to the polls to cast their 
ballots is real power. 

On November 7, we will all 
have the opportunity to cast 
our votes for a president who 
will be responsible for making 
decisions that will affect our 
lives during the next four 
years. Some of us will have the 
opportunity to cast our votes 
for other candidates who will 
make the same kinds of 
decisions. Our sole concern at 
the Voter Education Project, 
Inc., is to see that the 
decisions made by these men 
and women reflect the in- 
terests of the total electorate. 

Because we realize that 
young people, poor people, ' 
and minorities have peculiar 
problems which inhibit their 
getting to the polls on election 
day we are asking all 
students, community people, 
and all concerned people to do 
what has to be done — talk to 
friends and neighbors, make 
telephone calls, knock on 
doors, provide transportation 
to the polls-to get all eligible 
voters to cast their ballots on 
November 7. 

I used to be a nothing- a little 
short, fat, whiney kid from

Then something happened. 
I became educated. 

It all began in high school 
when I dropped out of P. S. 184 
and enrolled in what must 
have been the first Alternative 
School, In the swamps of 
Milwaukee, everyday after 
school, we guys used to smoke 
alfalfa on the shores of lovely 
Lake Michigan. One af- 
ternoon, I noticed my friend, 
Norman, lighting up. On the 
cover of his matchbook it said 
'Finish High School." 

"Let me see that, Norman," 
I said to Norman. 
"Okay," Norman said to 

And as I lit my weed, I 
opened the book of matches 
and read on : ' 'Are you tired of

So right away I wrote away. 
A few weeks later my info

"What's in that plain brown

"Just some obscene

"Okay," she said Just as

I promised her it wasn't and 
the next day dropped out of 
school. Everyday, between 
the hours of 7 : 45 a.m. and 4 : 30 
p.m., I'd sit on the banks of the

only an hour out for lunch.

Every once in awhile even

of governmental agencies 
makes an unintentional error 
in planning. Such was the

ministration demonstrated 
their mettle in seeking to 
protect the Northwestern 
Student body from unan- 
nounced intrusion. 

Mrs. Meredith Smith, a U . S. 
Census Health Interviewer, 
arrived on the Northwestern 
campus last Tuesday to 
perform a preliminary health 
and nutrition study for the 
Public Health Service. 

Natchitoches Parish had been 
selected as a sample district 
and a random selection of 
Northwestern students was 
chosen to participate. The 
college adminsistration was 
not notified of Mrs. Smith's 

Intending to choose sample 
Northwestern students for 
complete physical 
examinations at a later date, 
the Public Health Service was 
interested in ascertaining the 
health status of average 
American citizens to improve 
public health care benefits. 
But ignoring the proper 
channels, Mrs. Smith 
proceeded to contact the 
students and formulate her 

Her plans came to an abrupt 
halt when university officials 
discovered her actions. She

Dr. Richard H. Galloway, 
vice president of student 
affairs explained that any 
type of solicitor first must get 
the approval of the ad- 
ministration before at- 
tempting to contact Nor- 
thwestern students on cam- 
pus. "The student body wants 
us to provide this type of 
protection," Dr. Galloway 
said. "We have certain rules 
and regulations and they're 
going to be followed." 

Undaunted by her short- 
lived banishment from the 
Northwestern campus, Mrs. 
Smith continued her in- 
vestigation, contacting ap- 
proximately 100 residences in 
dormitories. She claimed that 
she did not understand the 
reason for the oversight . 

"Since we received the 
prospective names from the 
registrar's office and a large 
article appeared in the 
Shreveport Times, it 
shouldn't have been a com- 
plete surprise," she con-

brief sojourn on the Nor-

follow established guidlines in 
providing the protection for

captive audience, the students 

Students Express Opinions 
On Presidential Election 

STUDENT NURSES-- Several Northwestern 
nursing majors have decided to follow the same 
career choice as their mothers. Two local girls 
have mothers who are R.N.'s. Mothers and 
daughters from left, are Mrs. Robert Harling, 
Susan Harling, Louise Hankins, and Mrs. L.H. 

The first Tuesday in 
November marks not only the 
all-important day when 
Americans flock to the polls to 
elect their Chief Executive for 
the next four years but also 
the first time the college-age 
electorate has the opportunity 
to express their presidential 

The Northwestern chapter 
of the Young Voters to Re- 
Elect President Nixon, 
spearheaded by Chairman 
Ronnie Grappe, was 
established during the early 
part of this semester to for- 
mulate Nixon strategy plans. 
The group has been active in 
canvassing student voters,

In modern times, it has 
become somewhat unusual to 
see daughters following in 
their mothers' footsteps in 
choosing a career. There are, 
however, thirteen freshman

Natchitoches; Marsha 
Braswell and Mrs. A. M.

Mary Elise Davis and Mrs. 
Lawrence L. Davis, 
Alexandria; Kim Day and 
Mrs. Leon Day, Lafayette; 
and Deborah Ann Scott and 
Mrs. W. R. Scott, Grand Isle. 

Louise Hankins and Susan 
Harling both admitted that 
they were influenced by their 
mothers in their career 
choices to a degree, but said 
they would probably have 
gone into nursing had their 
mothers not been R. N.'s. The 
two girls will go to clinical in 
Shreveport next fall. 

The nursing program has 
changed considerably at 
Northwestern in the past few 
years. Before 1968, majors in 
the program spent one years 
on the Natchitoches campus, 
two years at clinical, and then 
returned to Natchitoches for 
their senior year. 

There were at one time four 
clinical campuses, located at 
Shreveport, Baton Rouge, 
Alexandria, and Monroe. 
Since the spring of 1968, all 
academic courses have been 
taught on the Natchitoches 
campus during the first two 
years of enrollment and af- 
terwards nursing majors go to 
Shreveport for their clinical 

This clinical nursing 
campus is located at the 
Warrington campus at 
Schumpert Memorial 
Hospital. Up untD 1970, majors 
had a clinical choice of

even bigger job. Whether it's building 
new power generating facilities or 
developing more control centers to 
monitor our systems.

and have the benefit of on-the- 
job training. Academic 
courses are taught at LSU-S. 
After a two-year stay the 
nursing majors are eligible to 
take their State Board 

If an associate degree 
candidate desires to return for 
a B. S. degree, they can take 
the academic courses here in 
Northwestern and then 
receive the four-year degree. 
The nursing major is also 
eligible to take challenge tests 
and may receive up to 30 hours 
of credit. 

The four-year course allows 
the nursing major to acquire 
much-needed leadership 
qualities. The pay is higher 
and promotions come more 
readily for the nursing major 
with a B. S. degree. Nurses 
under the Associate Degree 
program will be able to begin 
a career earlier. 

There have been several 
changes in the nursing 
program at Northwestern, 
leading to an enlarged and

working with absentee 
balloting and voter 
registration, and assisting in 
the Natchitoches Parish 
Republican campaign. 

An SBA senator-at-large 
and a prelaw major, Grappe 
feels that the work of the 
Young Voters to Re-Elect 
President Nixon has been 
instrumental in improving 
student involvement in this 
general election. 

"Students have begun to 
realize they can work for and 
help to elect the next 
president. They can now do 
something to help elect the 
candidate they feel is most 
qualified," he said. 

Grappe declined to pinpoint 
Nixon's primary source of 
voter appeal, but claimed that 
"people are voting for 
President Nixon for many 
diversified reasons." 
Although he has encountered 
what he described as "a good 
deal of voter apathy" con- 
cerning this election, Grappe 
predicted an ultimate Nixon 

"President Nixon will win 
by a majority greater than 
former President Johnson's 
landslide win over Senator 
Goldwater in 1964," Grappe 
concluded, "if the voter 
turnout is greater than 60 per 
cent or equal to voter par- 
ticipation in past elections." 

Robbie Fowlkes, a 
sophomore accounting major 
from West Monroe, served as 
an active member of the 
Northwestern youth com- 
mittee to re-elect President 
Nixon. He found the Vietnam 
war issue to have taken 
predominance as the major 
political topic concerning the 
young voter. 

The 18-20 year-old voter is 
not going to be concerned with 
a wage-and-price freeze and 
other such domestic issues," 
he said. "The war in Vietnam 
is the main issue. The vast 
majority of those I spoke to 
while canvassing the dor- 
mitory expressed a desire for 
the President to end the war 
and to bring the servicemen 
back home." 

Referring to criticism 
leveled at President Nixon's 
handling of the domestic 
scene, including recent rises 
in unemployment figures, 
Fowlkes said, "If you consider 
the number of people Nixon 
has brought home, there 
naturally will be unem- 
ployment. Nixon's main 
problem will be finding jobs 
for ex-military men." 

The Young Louisiana 
Republican Federation 
assisted in President Nixon's 
Northwestern campaign as 
well as in other Republican 
campaigns. Chairman Mark 
Hanna said that the or- 
ganization's efforts on 
campus were particularly 
effective due to the basic 
conservative atmosphere at 

"I think that the 'youth' 
term is being confused with 
the liberal connotation it had 
during the 1960's. The 
majority of the young voters, 
especially non-college youth, 
are pro-Nixon. Even on the 

college campuses, recent polls 
show McGovern with just a 
slight advantage," Hanna 

Hanna has also witnessed 
signs of disinterest with voters 
in this election, but blamed the 
problem on the apparent 
predetermined outcome. 

"I wouldn't term this as a 
dull campaign because there 
is too clear a choice," he 
added. "There is a great deal 
of apathy because many 
voters feel that they've 
already picked the winner." 

The Northwestern" 
McGovern forces, headed by 
Chairman Charles Herring, 
managed limited interest on 
campus but abandoned their 
efforts at Northwestern to 
concentrate on Natchitoches 
Parish voters. 

"Northwestern is basically 
a conservative campus. We 
decided to go parish-wide 
because we found we could 
generate more support in 
Natchitoches," Herring ex- 

Though all political polls 
and analysts have conceded 
the probable outcome to 
President Nixon, Herring 
pointed to the complacency in 
the Nixon camp as a possible 
weakness in the President's 
re-election plans. 

"It will take almost a 
miracle for McGovern to win 
the election," he claimed "but 
I doubt that the Nixon sup- 
porters will get out and vote. 
They won't take the election 
seriously and take the 
initiative to support their 

Herring said that the youth 
and labor vote would be 
McGovern 's most important 
block vote in the election. He 
added that while he felt 
President Nixon could carry 
Louisiana, McGovern would 
receive approximately 45 per 
cent of the state's vote. 

Anticipating a Nixon 
victory, Herring concluded, 
"If it's a close vote, it will 
push Nixon to the left. But if 
it's a landslide, it will only 
succeed in pushing him to be 
more conservative." 

Another McGovern sup- 
porter, who requested that her 
identity not be revealed, 
expressed McGovern 's more 
liberal attitudes on social 
problems to be his main basis 
for voter support. 

"There are a lot of issues 
that I agree with, but I par- 
ticularly like his ideas on the 
legalization of marijuana and 
abortion," she said. 

"I doubt if there'll be any 
significant changes in Nixon's 
admistration after this 
election, He'll probably be 
much more confident in 
pushing legislation with the 
popular support of the public 

behind him," she said 

Many experts have stated 
that the youth vote will have 
little effect on the eventual 
results of this election. But at 
Northwestern some students 
have taken the time and 
trouble to become involved in 
a policy-making decision that 
will have long-time reper- 
cussions. Their interest in the 
future of this country is

Maybe the way to change the world 
is to join a large corporation. 

We don't make a lot of noise, but this is where it's 
really happening. You see, a large corporation like Kodak has 
the resources and the skill to make this world a little more de- 
cent place to live. And we intend to do what we can to see 
that this is exactly what happens. 

Take our home city, Rochester, New York for exam- 
ple. We cut water pollution in the Genesee River by using 
natural bacteria to dispose of unnatural wastes. We cut air 
pollution by using electrostatic precipitators in a new com- 
bustible waste disposal facility. We helped set up a black 
enterprise program in downtown Rochester, and we've been 
experimenting with film as a way to train both teachers and 
students— including some students who wouldn't respond to 
anything else. 

And we didn't stop with Rochester. Kodak is involved 
in 47 countries all over the world. Actively involved. 

Why? Because it's good business. Helping to clean 
the Genesee River not only benefits society. . . but helps pro- 
tect another possible source for the clean water we need to 
make our film. Our combustible waste disposal facility not 
only reduces pollution . . . but just about pays for itself in 
heat and power production and silver recovery. Our black 
enterprise program not only provides an opportunity for the 
economically disadvantaged . . .but helps stabilize communi- 
ties in which Kodak can operate and grow. And distributing 
cameras and film to teachers and students not only helps 
motivate the children . . . but helps create a whole new market. 

In short, it's simply good business. And we're in busi- 
ness to make a profit. But in furthering our business interests, 
we also further society's interests. 

And that's good. After all, our business depends on 
societv. So we care what happens to it. mw I

Walls played high school 
football in Columbus, and then 
started for two years at East 
Mississippi Junior College at 
Scooba, Miss. 

"He's come a long way since 
he first stepped on the football 
field here," said Northwestern 
head Coach George Doherty. 
"He's worked hard and made 
great improvement. And 
being a senior, Larry has 
providedgood leadership to our 
younger players." 

Walls isn't the fastest 
football player on the field, but 
he isn't the slowest either. 
"Actually, Larry's quickness

NSU, USL Square Off 

By Mark Ezarik 

Demon Stadium will be the 
scene of the annual clash 
between the Ragin' Cajuns of 
USL and the NSU Demons this 

Saturday. Kickoff is set for 
7:30 p.m. 

The Cajuns closed out last

This record was due largely to 
a number of serious injuries.

Boyce - The Big Man 

When one talks about im- 
provement in Northwestern 's 
offensive line this season, the 
topic of the conversation 
centers around sophomore 
guard Mike Boyce. 

Boyce, a 243 pounder who 

prepped at Baton Rouge High, 
typifies the Demon offensive 
line, which includes three 
sophomores, one freshman 
and only two juniors. 

"We knew before the season 
started that we were going to 
be inexperienced and young," 

Harriers Run 
ForGSC Crown 

Fresh from an impressive 
victory over such schools as 
Texas Tech and TCU in an 
eight-team meet last 
weekend, Northwestern 's 
unbeaten cross country team 
carried the favorite's 
role Saturday in the Gulf 
South Conference meet at 
Troy , Alabama. 

The Demon harriers, 
sporting an 8-0 meet record, 
captured first, second, fourth 
and fifth places in Friday's 
meet run at Dallas over a 
muddy three mile course. 
Freshmen sensations Leo 
3atson and Frank Trammel 
took first and second 
respectively with times of 
15:23 and 15:24. 

Counting four places, 
Northwestern was first place 
with 12 points followed by 
Texas Tech with 46 and TCU 
with 49. Others trailing were 
Stephen F. Austin (86), 
Prairie View (88), Dallas 
Baptist (89), Texas-Arlington 
(118) and East Texas State 

Scheduled to compete in the 

GSC meet 

along with Nor- 
were Mississippi 
Host Troy State, 

Jacksonville State and 
Florence State. 

Mississippi College, which is 
also undefeated, and Troy 
State were expected to give 
Northwestern the toughest 
competition for the team title. 

The GSC meet was run over 
a hilly four-mile, 164 yard 

Joining Gatson and 
Trammel on the Demon team 
were freshmen Phillip 
McAndrew, Randy Moore and 
John Been and Sophomores 
David McLeod and Mark 

"We feel like we've got a 
good shot to win the con- 
ference championship," said 
Northwestern Coach Jerry 
Dyes, before their departure. 
"We've got about six boys who 
run well together in a group so 
we should have several near 
the front of the pack." 

Results will be posted in 
next week's Current Sauce. 

To Miss 
Season Opener 

With the season opener less 
than a month away, Nor- 
thwestern 's basketball team 
was dealt a severe blow 
Monday when it was an- 
nounced that starting center 
John Hill suffered a broken 
foot in a Saturday practice 

Hill, a 6-foot-5 senior from 
Mudville, Tenn., will have his 
foot in a cast for at least four 
weeks. He will definitely miss 
the November 27 season 
opener with Nicholls State, 

according to Coach Tynes 

"This injury has come at a 
bad time," said Hildebrand. 
"We didn't have any depth at 
center before his injury and 
we sure don't have any now." 

Hill is the second Demon 
player in less than a month to 
receive a broken foot. Cecil 
Thibodeaux, a 6-foot-3 fresh- 
man from Opelousas, is just 
recovering from a similar 

said offensive line Coach John 
Ropp. "But I felt that by mid- 
season that our line would jell 
and become consistent." 

Ropp turned out to be a 

The Demon offensive line 
was at its best two weeks ago 
when the Demons' dropped a 
20-16 verdict to Louisiana 
Tech, which was ranked No. 1 
in the nation at the time. 

Boyce was the leader of the 
effort given by the blocking 
corps. He was the top grader 
among the offensive linemen 
despite playing with badly 
bruised ribs. He missed three 
games early in the season due 
to a broken rib. 

"My ribs were still sore in 
the Florence and Tech 
games," said Boyce. "But the 
doctor gave the the okay and I 
was ready to play. My ribs 
didn't bother me when I got a 
straight hit, but it was plenty 
painful when someone would 
fall on the pile." 

Boyce and the rest of the 
offensive line will be facing 
one of their biggest tests of the 
season Saturday afternoon 
when the Demons meet 
nationally ranked McNeese 
State at Lake Charles. 

"McNeese has several 
tough defensive guards," 
Ropp pointed out. "It will be a 
real challenge for Mike to do a 
good job this week." 

"Our offensive line is more 
fired up now than we were 
earlier in the season," Boyce 
explained. "Our assignments 
aren't changing as much. We 
know what to expect from the 
defense more now than we use 

Ropp said Boyce is a leader 
on the team by his hustle and 
desire. "The rest of the 
players respect Mike for his 
hard work," 

Boyce was a defensive 
tackle as he began his fresh- 
man season a year ago. 
However, just before mid- 
season, he was moved to of- 
fensive guard. In less than 
a week he learned his blocking 
assignments and started the 
reat of the season at offensive 

"It takes an intelligent 
player to switch positions in 
the middle of a season," Ropp 
says. ' 'That's why we think 
Mike Boyce is more than just 
the average football player." 

Louisiana team sustained 
injuries serious enough to 
prevent they from playing in 
two or more games. 

Head mentor Russ 
Faulkinberry has taken to the 
now-popular Wishbone Of- 

"We are going to attempt 
the Wishbone because we feel 
it is more our cup of tea," said 
Faulkinberry. He also stated 
that last year USL "did not 
have the athletes available to 
run the finesse type of offense 
that is the current trend in 
modern football personnel or 

The wishbone appeared to 
be working well in the spring, 
and seemed to be suited to 
Southwestern 's young per- 
sonnel. Said Faulkinberry, 
"We also want the wishbone 
because it is similar to the 
offense we used to get us out of 
the woods during our building 
program during the mid '60s." 

The quarterback position is 
probably in the best shape of 
all the various team squads. 

A two-vear letterman. 
Robbie Juul, is back at the 
signal calling slot. Last year 
Juul rushed for 393 yards and 
was responsible for six touch- 
downs. He also completed 37 
of 91 passes for 608 yards and 
five TDs. 

Also at quarterback is 
Lafayettte High product Mark 
Speyrer. The sophomore field- 
general is rapidly rising 
through the ranks and shows 
improvement with every 
handling of the ball. 

The Cajun defense has been 
sticking with a pro-four, the 
same as last season. The USL 
defensive unit was plagued 
with injuries in '71, but ap- 
pears to be stronger now. 

The NSU-USL rivalry is an 
old one, dating back to 1909, 
the same year the NSU-Tech 
feud began. In the 62 games 
played since then, the 
Demons have won 28, lost 31, 
and tied three. 

With the NSU defense as 
tough as it is, and the 
awesome offense what it is, 
that 28-31-3 record should be a 
little more even after 
Saturday's contest. 

To put it quite bluntly, if the 
Demons do lose this game, it 
will be nobody's fault but their

Hall moustache race have been announced. The

It isn't Aspen, but it's real 
snow, real ice, a challenging 
ski run and all the swing in' 
apre's ski activities that make 
winter sports so much fun. 
And it's within easy driving 
distance for students in 
Southern United States. 

It's the Mid South's first 
winter sports resort-Marble 
Falls Estates, located in the 
Ozarks near Harrison, Ark., 
overlooking the Dogpatch, 
USA theme park. And it's 
opening December 15. 

Snowmaking equipment is 
installed on the resort's two 
500-foot beginner's slopes and 
its 1,500 foot intermediate 
slope. Normal snowfall in the 
area will be supplemented 
throughout the winter season 
with manmade snow just like 
nature's own. 

The intermediate slope 
drops the height of a 25-story 
building from top to bottom. 
Its three "thrill drops" make 
it exciting for even a veteran 
skier. Night skiiing on 
weekends, plus special low 
weekday skiing rates are 
intended to attract students 
and other young people for the 

The resort's three-story 
Alpine style ski lodge 
overlooking the slopes is 
scheduled for completion 
December 1, while the huge 
(47 by 130 foot iced area) 
skating rink is now almost 
complete. From its elevation 
of 1,349 feet above sea level, 
the ski lodge dominates the 
surrounding scenic Ozarks. 

Professional ski instructors 
are already on hand. Skiing 
and skating pro shops will 
provide both retail and rental 

Rustic fireplaces, native 
stone and wood construction 
set the Alpine flavor for the 
resort, which includes a new 
motel and convention center. 
Alpine chalets for rent, lease 
or purchase are also located 
on land overlooking the slopes. 
Additional lodging for visitors 
is available at the Dogpatch 
Motel facilties and in nearby 

Harrison and Jasper. 

Reservations for the 
December 15 to March 15 
winter season are being ac- 
cepted at Marble Falls and at 
the resort's Little Rock office. 
As at most ski resorts, the 
Marble Falls management 
urges skiers to check snow 
conditions before departing 
home when planning a ski trip.

ROTC Cadets Return 
From Advanced Camp 

Fifteen ROTC cadets had 
the opportunity to discover the 
"fun and frolic" of advanced 
army training for a weekend 
at the Recondo School at 
Camp Red Devil in Fort 
Carson, Colo. 

The advanced corps cadets, 
under the supervision of 
Major Walt Taylor of the 
Department of Military 
Science, received ap- 
proximately 16 hours of in- 
structions in land navigation, 
patrolling and climbing cliffs 
from some of the tip in- 
structors in the U. S. Army. 

The instructors at the 
Recondo School, the largest 
reconnaissance and com- 
mando operations school 
operated by the army, had 
only enough time to hit the 
highlights of a training 
program that requires 300 
hours of instruction and 
practical application to 



A. Dinklage, 
commandant of the school 
since 1968, said that he was 
impressed by the willingness 
3f the cadets to learn as much 
as they did in the short span of 

After an hour in the 
classroom , the cadets broke 
up into squads for a four hour 
exercise on the compos 
course. A pea-soup fog cut 
visibility to less than 100 

The cadets then began a five 
hour operation to learn proper 
procedures in patrolling under 
warlike conditions with in- 
structorsat the school acting as 
aggressors. One of the 
squads maneuvered their 
way unseen by their 

Sunday morning the cadets 
were taught cliff rappelling. 

' Cadets attending "were 
Dennis Wilkinson, Eldon 
Cook, Gary Estess, Richard 
Hooter, Jemes Berry, Robert 
Harris, Robert Haire, Ken 
Bates, Mark Welner, Robert 
Scott, Joe Wanersdorfer,

Changes Urged 
In Penal Sy 

and : 

By Janet Vanhoof 

Ms. Elayne Hunt, recently- 
appointed director of the 
Louisiana Department of 
Corrections, urged a change in 
public attitude towards 
corrections and an increase in 
personnel in order to upgrade 
the penal system in the state. 
Ms. . Hunt addressed an 
organizational meeting of the 
Natchitoches Chapter of the 
Community Action for 
Corrections (CAC) last 
Tuesday on campus. 

Ms. Hunt, who was_ ap- 
pointed to the position about 
five months ago by Gov. 
Edwin Edwards, said 
although the nation's penal 
system has been labeled a 
"conclusive case of failure" 
by President Nixon, the 
Louisiana system is far ahead 
of some states with many good 
programs in opertion now

SBA members who attended the lab were 
Ronnie Grappe, Linsey Torbett, Nina Mar-

Steve McGee. Black representatives also 
participated along with other students. The 
lab consisted of group discusssions, trust 
exercises and honesty sessions. These 
exercises were under the direction of 
psychology personnel. 

The initial impression of the member of 
the SBA attending was that the encounter 
session concerned such aspects as group 
leadership and communication. Many stated 
that thev had walked into the lab prepared for 
something else than was presented. Fulgham 
said that she was surprised how quickly the 
general feeling became hostile. 

Much of the day's discussion was on 
prejudice. Referring to this, McGee said, 
"We are not ready for something like this. It 
could blow up in our faces." One SBA 
member felt that possibly a riot could 
develop from such a forum. 

Fulgham stated that the lab did make her 
aware of the magnitude of the existing

Beginning in the 1973 spring semester, 
physical education courses will not be 
required by most departments of NSU, Dr. 
Charles F. Thomas, vice president of 
academic affairs, stated recently. The final 
say as to whether physical education will be 
required is with the head of each department 
of the university. 

Presently only the education department 
requires its students to take physical 
education classes. 

Dr. Thomas said that seniors graduating in 
the 1973 spring term will not have to take 
another physical education class if it is not 
required by the department head. 

He stated that if a department decides to 
drop the physical education requirements, it 
cannot add other courses to take the place of 
the dropped courses. By dropping the 
physical education requirements, the 
required hours for a degree would be reduced. 

The new physical education course 
provisions are on a two-year basis. Dr. Robert 
Alost, department head of health, physical 
education and recreation, said the depart- 
ment has been talking with Dr. Thomas and 
Dr. Arnold Kilpatrick, president of NSU, 
trying to put physical education courses in an 
elective system. 

Physical education courses will be two 
semester hours, instead of one semester hour, 
when the program starts next semester. Also 
during the first two weeks a shident will be 
given an option of receiving a grade in the 
course or taking it on a pass-fail basis. 

On the pass-fail basis the student will be 
given the two semester hours if the course is 
passed. This is done for a student who may 
want to take a course but does not want to 
take the chance of hurting his grade-point 
average, Dr. Alost said. A student may take

Ry Ronald Sanchez 

Gov. Edwards also refuted misconceptions on 
the state government's appraisal of LSA. 

SBA president Roddy Dye, confident of 
the eventual gains to be realized from this 
unification of institutions, expressed a need 
for Northwestern to remain in close contact 
with other universities throughout the state. 

"I think that Northwestern as a university 
and as a member of LSA can learn from its 
sister colleges, can become more 
knowledgeable on matters pertaining to 
students state-wide rather than just those 
concerning NSU, and can begin better 
communication lines between other students 
and the administration in Baton Rouge 
through a representative agency such as 
LSA," Dye said. 

SBA senator-at-large Ronnie Grappe and 
sophomore class senator Robbie Fowlkes 
both admitted to a certain air of confusion 
concerning LSA membership in the early 
stages of the discussion, but they 
ultimately supported the move because they 
felt it was in the best interest of the students. 

"The question I asked about LSA," said 
Grappe ,-was "now would it help Nor- 
thwestern?' I met with personnel involved 
with LSA and found they are making efforts to 
work with the administration and the State 
Board of Education, which they hadn't done 
in the past. I think that students gathering in 
more or less of a forum-type atmosphere will 
be beneficial to problem-solving." 

•'The money was in the financial budget to 
join LSA," Fowlkes explained, "and I feel 
that if one representative can bring back one 
idea and spread it to possible 10 students, then 
the money was well spent." 

Steve McGee, vice president of the SBA, 
remained apprehensive about the I.SA move 
after the bill's passage. The unknown quality 
of the organization and possibility of 
-epercussions in state government were two 
deterrents he found in LSA membership. 

"I'm very skeptical at this point, not so 
much of LSA but of our involvement in it," he 

said. The really significant thing is that 
people just don't know what LSA is. The 
Governor has no opinion, the State 
Superintendent of Education has no opinion, 
and President Kilpatrick has left it to 
the student leaders to decide. But with any 
student group there is always the danger of 
irritating the powers that be, whether they be 
in Baton Rouge or at your own university." 

The structural make-up of LSA consists 
of a Board of Directors and an Executive 
Director who meet bi-monthly or when the 
need arises at alternating sites. Student body 
presidents or their designated representative 
serve as voting members of the Board, with 
the Executive Director elected from that 

Voting strength, and the ultimate mem- 
bership fee assessment, is determined 
proportionately by the school's enrollment. 
Universities with less than 3,000 students are 
charged $50 and receive one vote; those 
ranging from 3,000 to 10.000 students receive 
two votes and a $100 yearly fee. This 
graduated scale continues to a maximum ot 
1*200 dues and four votes per school. 

The LSA concept maintains that as a 
merged entity, Louisiana universitites can 
accomplish more and can wield greater 
power than by operating separately and 
divided. Though the group has no actual 
authoritative power, its purpose is to exert an 
influential, persuasive force to state ad- 

LSA members have gathered to discuss and 
to formulate resolutions concerning man- 
datory dormitory living regulations, 
curriculum reform, a single board for higher 
education in the state, free legal aid to 
students, and numerous other student- 
related topics. LSA also supported the 18-year 
old emancipation movement and voter 
registration campaigns. 

In addition to Northwestern, many 
Louisiana state-supported and privately- 
funded universities and colleges have joined 
LSA. Louisiana Tech, Tulane, USL, 
Southeastern, and members of the LSU 
system are among those affiliated with LSA. 

the course over again for a grade if he 
wishes to. 

Also within the first two weeks a student can 
take a skill test and receive a grade. If the 
students passes the skill test he must drop the 
course and he is not allowed to take the course 
again. He is not allowed to take the course 
again because if a person continually takes a 
course with skill test, the skill test grades 
would upset his grade-point average. 

Dr. Thomas stated that a student may take 
a course as many times as he wishes (this 
does not apply to students who took skill tests 
for a grade). He also expressed that by taking 
a course over a person can master a life- 
time skill. 

Dr. Alost commented that the physical 

Survey Underway 

education department wants to meet the 
needs and interest of the students. He also 
said the department was trying to get away 
from team oriented sports and go to In- 
dividual oriented activities. 

The physical education department 
checked with the University of Tennessee, the 
University of Utah and LSU to see how 
their elective physical education program 
was going. They found that the program was 
going well and was well received. 

In gathering information, it was found that 
at first the number of students taking courses 
dropped, but later the number increased. In 
some universities the number of students 
taking elective courses was more than the 
number when the courses had been required. 

System Expands 

The possibility of two additional co- 
educational dormitories, based upon the 
same principles as the Natchitoches Hall 
svstem, will be decided upon next week. 
Caspari and Varnado are the two halls 
under consideration for expansion of the co-ed 
system. Residents of these halls will be 
surveyed next week on their opinions of 
changing to a system of separate wings for 
men and women students in the same building 
with lobbies in common use at all times. 

Last week separate meetings were held in 
these respective dormitories to discuss the 
possible changes. At the meeting were in- 
terested residents of the halls, Bill Schwartz, 
housing director; and various officials 
representing the SBA, AWS, and AMS. 
Complaints were also heard on the present 
dormitory situation. 

If the concerned students vote af- 
firmatively for the co-educational concept, 
this concept will then be expanded to be the 
largest in the state. The concept is designed to 
provide a living-learning center providing 
more student freedom, increased student 
involvement and decreased property 
damage, according to Faye David. David is a 
member of a group organized to promote the 
co-ed concept. 

Both halls have east and west wings joined 
only by a first floor lobby and living room 
area. Establishment of this system has been 
termed in line with the progressive trend in 
university policies in the past. 

Some students do object to the possibility ot 
having to move from their respective dorms if 
the proposal is passed. Steve McGee, SBA 
vice president and supporter of the system, 
stated that perhaps the natural turnover at 
the end of this semester would provide enough 
vacancies for those who object to moving. 

When Natchitoches Hall was changed to its 
present co-ed system there were ap- 
proximately 300 students who applied, but 
who could not be accommodated. The ex- 
pansion of this system would allow ac- 
comodation for them. 

Residents will also be given an opportunity 
to view prospective co-ed dormitories if the 
survey indicates approval during open house 
hours in each dorm. 

An open house policy pertaining to NSU 
dormitories is in the final planning stages by 
the Housing Committee. From all indications 
this policy will be implemented within seven 
to ten days. Additional information regar- 
doing regarding specific rules, hours, and 
policies will be forthcoming. 

Cafeteria Offers Meal 
To Support Bengalis 

A traditional Bengali dinner will be served 
at the evening meal Wednesday in the 
cafeteria as part of a nationwide project to 
support the Bangladesh cause. 

According to John Radcliffe, cafeteria 
manager, the "Feast for Bangladesh" is 
being sponsored by the National Association 
of University Food Services Directors and 
supported by Saga Foods. 

The purpose of the project is to raise funds 
to establish and staff a Bangladesh Food 
Service Institute in Dacca to train men and 
women victims of the war in food service 
skills. Even though the fighting has stopped 
starvation is widespread and the economic 
situation and the personal suffering of the 
Bangladesh people continues. A low-cost 
cafeteria will also be operated as part of the 
Institutes training program. As the people 
learn, new cafeterias, subsidized by the 
government can be opened. 

The dinner will consist of rice and chicken, 
much like we are accustomed to except for 
the addition of certain spices. Two regular 
entrees will be served for those who prefer 

Steve McGee, vice-president of the SBA 
and chairman of the Student Services 
Committee, said that he hopes to have the 
project endorsed by the senate. Members of 
this committee will be assisting in the 
collection of donations at the meal. 

Donations received from the meal will be 
placed in a special account and will then be 
forwarded to CONCERN, a voluntary relief 
organization in Dacca, the capital of 
Bangladesh. CONCERN is based in Dublin 
and nas been active since early in 1971 and 
has been charged by the Bangladesh 
government with starting and operating 
vocational training programs in Dacca. It 
also operates four mobile clinics in the rural 
area and is also engaged in rural health 

John Denver To Return 

John Denver, noted vocalist whose music 
has continued to climb the charts over the last 
three years, has been signed by the Student 
Union Governing Board for the Christmas 
Festival performance, December 2. 

Denver, who appeared at NSU last spring, 
rode up the charts with "Leaving On a Jet 
Plane," which not only became a seller for 
him but was recorded by Peter, Paul and 
Mary, Spanky and Our Gang, Floyd Cramer 
and Liza Minnelli. Although Denver doesn't 
consider it is best song it still holds its popular 

He has five albums to his credit and his 
recent single, "Take Me, Home, Country 
Roads," became a million seller. His last 
album, "Airiefshould be coming up soon. 

John Denver began taking guitar lessons on 
an old Gibson given him by his grandmother 
and he 'became adept on the 6 and 12 string 
guitar. He became involved in the folk music 
explosion and tried his luck in show business 
on the West Coast. He replaced Chad Mitchell 
as head of his trio and worked with them for 
fot"; years before striking out on his own. 

Of his work as a performer, Denver has 
maintained, "I don't want to entertain 
people; I want to touch them." His basic 

concerns for ecology, the war and social 
injustice are often reflected in his songs. 

Denver pleased the NSU audience with this 
vibrant yet diversified performance last 
spring. Speaking of his natural style he said: 
"When I first begin my concert, I try to make 
the people comfortable, try to get them to 
accept me. Then they hear I have a good 
sound, and they can relax, settle back, and 
have a good time. That is the main purpose of 
my concerts-for the audience to enjoy

Of Sanity? 

By Niva Davis 

Lack of Information 

In an attempt to provide a service to Nor- 
thwestern students, Ronnie Grappe, Chairman of 
the Young Voters for Nixon organization tried 
together with other members of the organization' 
to supply as many students as had requested, with 
absentee ballots. 

Grappe received information on how to canvass 
an area from a political, state-wide handout, and 
from this information the members began the 
task of recording the names and addresses of 
students needing absentee ballots from their 
different parishes. The handout did not explain the 
necessity of obtaining the students' ward and 
precinct numbers in areas where local elections 
were taking place, and this information was not 
taken from the students. 

Several days before the absentee deadline, 
Grappe received a phone call from the Caddo 
Parish Clerk of Court office and was told that he 
did not have the necessary ward and precinct 
numbers, and that they had tried to look up as 
many names as possible in their records, but 
some students had not given their whole names. In 
cases of common names, if the middle name was 
not given, they could not be certain which of the 
names and information belonged to the student. 

East Baton Rouge Parish was the only other 
parish that informed Grappe of the lack of in- 
formation, but they did not send him a list of the 
students whose records they were unable to 

As none of the other parishes contacted Grappe, 
he had no way of knowing whether or not those 
parishes had sent the ballots to the students. In 
some small parishes, the Clerk of Court office 
could go by the students addresses, to locate the 
students' records. 

As many students as possible were contacted by 
Grappe in an attempt to get the necessary in- 
formation, but the time element and the number 
of students made the task of contacting evervone 
an impossibility. 

The Caddo Clerk of Court office was contacted 
and asked if it was possible for a ballot ap- 
preciable state-wide, without those elective posts 
based on wards and precincts to be sent to the 
students. An official of the Clerk of Court office 
stated that such ballots were not printed Just 
imagine the number of different ballots that would 
be needed. 

I hope that the parishes that did not inform 
Grappe of the lack of information were able to 
send ballots to the students. If not, they should 
have notified him. The action taken by Caddo 
Clerk of Court could be used as a good example of 
efficient and professional service. 

This is the first time that anything of this 
magnitude has been attempted at Northwestern. 
It is regrettable that certain incidents caused the 
failure of such a project. It is only hoped that if 
attempted again, this experience will aid in the 
success of future projects. 

Lingering Hostility 

Recently a complaint was registered involving a 
student's alleged abuse of his campus position. 
Whether the accusation was based upon fact I 
cannot judge, nor do I care to. Upon investigation, 
the incident seemed to have mushroomed entirely 
out of proportion. 

The point that has become clear however, is the 
responsibility a student has in holding a position 
and how open to criticism this leaves such a 

It is onlv honed that both Darties involved in this 
incident will learn from this experience and put 
their emotions behind them. The incident itself 
does not justify any lingering feelings of hostility. 


Never before has such progress been made in 
the area of dormitory life at Northewstern. New 
living situations such as the co-educational 
dorms, dorm visitation rights, and overall rules 
and regulations concerning dorm living have 
taken their first steps into 20th century reality. 

Bill Schwartz, Housing Director, members of the 
administration, and students interested enough to 
bring such matters to the attention of these people 
are to be commended. 

Students Urged To Support 
Fee Increase For Yearbook 

Hie Potpourri is in financial 
trouble. This fact is to the 
rising costs of publishing and 
the stable fee. The student fee 
has been $7 since before 1952 
(suice World War II) and 

prices have gone up! 

Last year to publish the

almost $9,000 in the red. This 
was allowed to happen 
because those involved felt

you the students, the 
predicament your yearbook is 
in. This can only be remedied 
if you will support and vote for 
the amendment to raise the

As you can see the money is 
desperately needed! If the

get your yearbook back on its 
financial feet again.

yearbook at Northwestern State University of Louisiana, has 
remained at $7 per full time student since World War Two; 

WHEREAS, necessary expenditures required to publish a

the revenue produced by the student fees each year;

To answer your questions: 

I don't know why the

they had their reasons and one

to (1) pay off pur debt and (2) 
put out a book comparable to 
last year's. 

There are two more 
scholarships allotted to the

was not the only staff in-

Dear Editor, 

Due to questions that have 
arisen regarding the Young 
Voters for Nixon assistance in 
helping students acquire 
absentee ballots for the

believe it would be beneficial 
to future operations of this 
nature to explain a few of the 
difficulties in undertaking 
such an operation. 

"Young Voter" canvassers 
contacted approximately 
sixteen hundred students. One 
aspect of the canvass survey 
was whether or not the student 
needed assistance in 
acquiring an absentee ballot. 
Six hundred and fifty students 
did request help. Ap- 
proximately one week later, 
the canvassers attempted to 
contact these students to 
acquire additional in- 
formation needed. After two 
weeks of such an effort, ap-

on persons not contacted, 
several additional days were 
spent in an attempt to acquire 
information from campus 

Several days before the 
deadline to vote absentee, 
Caddo Parish's Clerk of Court 
Office contacted me stating 
that they could not locate the 
students' records of 
registration with information 
supplied. At this Doint, the 
situation of providing these 
students with absentee ballots 
was impossible. The only 
other parish that sent 
correspondences regarding 
this subject was East Baton 
Rouge Parish. They also 
stated that not enough in- 
formation was given to locate 
the students' records of 
registration. A list of students 
that they were not able to 
locate was not supplied me. 

What is very puzzling is that 
many parishes were able to 
provide students with an 
absentee ballot while other 
parishes were not. Where the 
fault lies is not yet com- 
pletely determined. Had the 
students taken some initiative 
in acquiring absentee ballots, 
the problems of the operation 
would have been of less 

In my opinion, this project 
did greatly assist a number of 
NSU students, and I do en- 
courage a program of this 
nature in future elections. But 
unless the students attempt to 
help themselves, the program 
will continue to have 
numerous drawbacks.

Psychology Department. The 
consensus of those who at-

Dramatic Offering This Week 

Cast Awaits Future Competition 

The Northwestern Speech 
and Journalism Department 
has entered "J.B." in the 
American College Theatre 
Festival to be held at LSU in 
Baton Rouge on November 19- 

"J.B." is the 1959 Pulitzer 
Prize for Drama winner, 
written by playwright-poet 
Archibald MacLeish. The 
play is a re-enactment of the 
story of the biblical character 
Job, but with a modern day 
setting. "J.B." will be per- 
formed by the Davis Players 
under the direction of Ray 
Schexnider. This now-classic 
drama is the major production 
at NSU this season , and will be 
presented in the NSU Little 
Theatre on November 15, 16, 
17 and 18 at 7:30 each night! 

The American College 
Theatre Festival began ten 
years ago as an organization 
to focus attention on college 
and university theatres, and to

When the curtain falls for 
the final time on "J.B." at 
NSU, the entire production 
will be immediately moved to 
Baton Rouge where members 
of the Festival committee will 
judge the best college theatre 
production in Louisiana. 
Northwestern will be judged 
along with six other schools in 
all facets of theatre produc-

Northwestern win the state 
competition, they will then go 
to the John F. Kennedy 
Center for the Performing 
Arts in Washington D.C. for 
the national competition.

Young Performers 

One unusual aspect for a 
college production such as 
"J.B." is the appearance of 
five young actors in the second 
scene of the first act. Ranging 
in age from eight to 13, they 
appear on stage for about 10 

The children, who are all 
from Natchitoches, are 
students at the Natchitoches 
Children's Theatre, Inc., now 
in its third year. The young 
actors play the children of 
J.B., (John David Etheridge) 
and Sarah (Sally Graham), 
whose family and possessions 
are taken away when God 
tests J. B.'s faith the way he 
did with Job in the Bible. 

The children are nine-year 
old Kayla Murphy, daughter 

of Mrs. Mike Murphy; eight- 
year old Kim Scoggins, 
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
Leland Scoggins; nine-year 
old Angie Evans, daughter of 
Mr. and Mrs. Sidney B. 
Evans; 13 year -old Sid 
Presson, son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Frank Presson and 12 year -old 
Roger Jones, son of Rev. and 
Mrs. Jim Jones. 

Not only will these young 
actors appear all four nights 
at Northwestern but will 
perform with the Davis 
players when they enter the 
first round of the American 
College Festival in Baton 

The scene in which the 
children appear on stage takes 
place on Thanksgiving Day, 
with the family sitting around 
the dinner table. They eat 
after an exceptionally short 
grace and then go into a song 
and dance routine, called 
"Family Song." 

At the Natchitoches 
Children's Theatre, Inc., these 
children have used their ideas 
in improvisation al drama. 
They learn how to speak and 
move on stage, because these 
are an actor's greatest tools. 

Past Experience 

John Etheredge, a senior 
speech major from Logan- 
sport, has been cast in the lead 
role of J.B. Etheredge was 
with the Everyman Players, a 
professional company, when 
they tookthe "Book of Job" on 

Opposite in the role of 
Sarah, J.B.'s wife, will be 
Sally Graham, senior speech 
major from Alexandria. 
James Wilson will appear in 
the role of Mr. Zeus (God). 
Wade Heaton stars as Mr: 
Nichels (satan). 

J. B. and Sarah and their five 
children maintain a com- 
fortable and happy household

Our Waitresses ain't so

at the beginning of the play. 
One day messengers deliver 
bad news to J.B. and begin his 
downfall and signal the 
beginning of the testing of his 
faith by God. 

The news is that J.B.'s 
oldest son has been killed 
after the war is over. This 
followed by the news that a 
daughter and another son 
have been killed in an ac- 
cident. J.B. later learns that 
another daughter dies after 
being raped by an idiot. 

A fifth child dies of burns 
received in a holocaust in 
which J.B. is also burned. 

There are comforters in the 
play who come to J.B. during 
his misery. They tell him not 
to worry about God but to 
worry about himself and that 
history has a way of punishing 

J.B. learns that innocent 
people do die and surfer 
hardships and that there is 
nothing wrong with asking 
God why things are hap- 
pening to him. One of the most 
striking statements J.B. 
makes in the play is "I will not 
kneel down and accept my 
punishment without knowing 

of God as He appears in the production of "J.B." 
which opens this week in the Little Theatre. 

I'm OK- You're OK. By 
Thomas A. Harris, M.D. 
Harper & Row, New York. 
1972. $5.93. 

Written by the noted 
psychiatrist and pioneer of 
Transactional Analysis, Dr. 
Thomas A. Harris, "I'm OK- 
You're OK" has held a tight 
grasp on the number one 
position on the New York 
Times best -seller list for the 
better part of 1972. The 
popularity of the work rests 
primarily in its simplistic, 
readable approach to a rather 
complex and abstract theory, 
that of Transactional 

According to Dr. Harris, 
Transactional Analysis is 
the method of examining and 
systematizing the human 
responses, known as tran- 
sactions, which determine 
future actions. This 
breakthrough fundamentally 
decides the individual's 
reactions toaspecific situation. 

The author contends that the 
human personality consists of 
three integral components: 
the Parent, the Adult, and the 
Child. While these concepts do 
not maintain their ordinary 
connotations in Transactional 
Analysis, they do govern the 
behavioral patterns of the 

Forensics Team Develops Talents 
By Participation in Debate Activity 

The Northwestern Foren- 
sics team, consisting of 
members involved in both 
individual skill and team 
events, has for the past two 
months concentrated on 
perfecting their art of oral 
communication. Assistant 
professor of Speech, Dr. 
deAnn Dawes is the director of 
the forensics squad. 

Preparation for university 
tournament competition 
began this year with an- 
nouncement of the national 
collegiate topic- Resolved: 
That the federal government 
should provide a program of 
comprehensive medical care 
for all U. S. Citizens." Intense 
and thorough research 
followed with the formulation 
of both affirmative and 
negative cases to support or 
refute the contention. 

A typical debate tour- 
nament may have up to 20 
participating college teams. 
These teams, with two 
members alternating the af- 
firmative and negative sides, 
usually debate in six one-hour 

The debate begins with the 
affirmative team presenting 
its position, primarily through 
justification of the main topic. 
Constructive speeches, lasting 
10 minutes each, are then 
given by the negative team to 
counteract the affirmative's 

Plans for implementation of 
the proposal as well as a 
rebuttal to answer negative 

accusations are then given by 
the affirmative squad in an 
orderly, alternating pattern. 
Rebuttal speeches are of five 
minute duration. The negative 
side then concludes the debate 
round with a strategic attack 
on the plan. 

Competition in university 
debate tournaments usually 
exists as an elimination set- 
up, where the teams faring 
better in the early rounds go 
on to further matches. A 
tournament may last for three 
days, with fast -paced activity 
beginning in the early mor- 
ning and continuing through 
the last evening. 

One judge usually presides 
at the preliminary matches, 
but a panel of three experts 
in the art of debate decides the 
finals " 

Membership in the Nor- 
thwestern forensics team is 
open to all students interested 
in developing their talents in 
argumentative and public 
speaking. There is no formal 
training other than practice 
debates between team 

According to Dr. Dawes, 
members of the debate quad 
obtain valuable experience in 
their association with the 
forensics team. 

"It helps to develop con- 
fidence in speaking, helps to 
become fully informed on 
controversial subjects, gives 
the opportunity to travel and 
meet many different people at 
other colleges and univer- 

sities, Dr. Dawes said. "But 
the primary value obtained is 
that it gives the ability to 
respond and think on your 

Debate team members are 
also involved in individual 
events, such as dramatic 
readings, poetry selections, 
and impromptu speeches. 
Preparation of these activities 
requires considerable 
diligence on the part of the 
student, according to Dr. 

Mary Lynn Williamson, a 
Junior speech education 
major and a member of the 
forensics team, finds the 
stimulation aroused in 
competitive debate to be its 
greatest reward. 

"When you are in an 
actual debate, your analytical 
powers have to be in evidence. 
Mental alertness is a necessity. 
You must speak quickly and 

fluently on the spot," she said. 

"While your 're in the midst 
of a debate, you are free from 
the little cares of living. 
There's just no time to think 
about them," she continued 
' It's an exhilarating feeling to 
know you've had strong 
competition and to know 
you've done well." 

Though she admitted to a 
certain apprehension when 
she first began debating, 
Mary Lynn said she gains 
confidence with each outing. 
"With each round you get 
more poise until finally you're 
able to concentrate fully on 
what your opponents are 
saying," she concluded. 

The Northwestern Foren- 
sics team, in addition to 
traveling throughout the South 
to university tournaments, 
will host two meets here on the 
Northwestern campus.

Dr. Harris asserts that the 
brain functions to recall, to 
relive, and to record. A person 
can, therefore, not only store a 
memory for an indefinite 
length of time, but he can also 
unconsciously recreate the 
circumstances surrounding 
the event to propel himself 
back in time. Dr. Harris feels 
that this ability is vital in the 
development of the three 
character elements. 

Dr. Harris' hypothesis on 
Transactional Analysis 
maintains that all 
motivational impulses are 
acquired in the first five years 
of life. The Parent instinct 
represents the security, the 
tenderness, and the in- 
dependence instilled by 
authoritarian figures. But in 
the same individual, the Child 
instinct is present 
simultaneously as the 
response measure to the 

The third element of 
personality, the Adult, is the 
most desireable. in Dr. 
Harris' estimation, because 
this state is obtained through 
logical reasoning and adap- 
tion to the surroundings. 

"I'm OK-- You're OK" 
explores the nature of why 
things occur-why we respond 
to certain happenings in 
different ways. The book 
attempts to explain the nature 
of psychiatry as both a 
teaching and learning device 
understandable to all those 
interested in the intricate 
workings of the mind. 

Though Dr. Harris has tried 
to give a clear-cut, concise 
practical guide to Tran- 
sactional Analysis and not a 
technical study of the subject, 
some readers may object to 
the somewhat vague concept. 
In tackling the human mind, 
Dc. Harris has ventured to 
bridge a wide gulf of misun- 
derstanding and misin- 
formation. But students of 
psychology and those in- 
terested in new ideas will find 
"I'm OK--You're OK" a 
fascinating exploration into a 
little known topic.

Demons Vs. Lions 

The Northwestern Demons 
will close out their regular 
season this Saturday in a 'Gulf 
South Conference game 
against the Southeast 
Louisiana Lions. Kickoff will 
be 7:30 in Demon Stadium. 

The Demons' biggest 
problem in the game will be 

By Mark Ezarik 


Last year's SLU club went 0- 
11, and are c aring only slightly 
better this season. Two 
Saturdays ago the Lions were 
crushed in their homecoming 
battle with Delta State. 24-7, 
and their record dropped to 
3-6. Last Saturday they played 

Demons Whip 
Pokes, Enter 
Bowl Picture 

The ball bounced in every 
direction but NcNeese's 
Saturday when the Demons 
made a mockery of the 
Cowboy homecoming 
festivities in Lake Charles by 
drubbing the seventh-ranked 
team to the tune of 25-10. 

The victory, which marked 
the first time the Pokes have 
been beaten in a homecoming 
game since 1968, was a 
designated Gulf South Con- 
ference game and clinched for 
NSU a portion of the GSC title. 
The win also put Northwestern 
into the NCAA College 
Division and NAIA bowl 

With only Southeastern 
remaining on the Demons' 
conference schedule, Nor- 
thwestern holds a full game 
lead over Livingston 

The Demons, true to form, 
scored first and early in the 
game. After taking the 
opening kickoff at their own 
20, they were placed back to 
the 10 for having an illegal 
receiver downfield. 

From here, the combined 
efforts of Donald Johnson and 
Lynn Hebert accounted for 13 
yards. Hebert then hit 
Skipper Morgan, advancing 
the ball to the NSU 34. 

Johnson then found a hole up 
the middle and galloped 66 
yards to paydirt. With Randy 
Walker's PAT, the score stood 
7-0 . The clock showed 13:30 
remaining in the first quarter. 

Early in the second quarter, 
McNeese's Carlos Medrano 
closed the gap slightly with a 
24-yard field goal. 

Later in the same period 
Walker booted a 57-yard 
punt to the Poke eight. Jerry 
Simpson forced the fumble 
into the end zone. When 
Cowboy Billy Blakeman 
scooped up the ball, he found 
escape impossible and yielded 
the two safety points. 

At the half, NSU held its 9-3 

Quarterback Greg Davis 
took to the air again in the 
third quarter, this time with 
results. Running back Lee 
Duplichan hauled in a Davis 
pass and broke over the goal. 
Medrano 's kick was again 
true, and the Cowboys took the 
lead for the only time in the 

With 12:27 remaining in the 
third quarter McNeese held a 
wobbly 10-9 edge. 

Linebacker Gordon 
Boogaerts pounced on a Big 
Mac fumble at the home 
team's 42 to set up Walker's 
go-ahead field goal. When 
NSU drive went cold at the 33, 
Walker went in to boom his 39- 
yarder to give the Demons a 
12-10 lead. 

Moments later, Stan Strobel 
fell on a fumble caused by 
Mike Doherty on the Poke 11. 
After a penalty for un- 
sportsmanlike conduct set a 
fourth and 27 situation at the 
Cowboy 28, the Demons went 
for the TD. 

Lynn Hebert sailed a pass to 
Reggie Thompson, who 
nabbed the pigskin after it was 
deflected by two McNeese 
defenders. With 1:44 left in the 
third frame, Northwestern 
held a 19-10 lead. 

With 7:11 left in the game, 
Walker again put his foot in it 
with another 39-yard field 

A 32-yard Walker boot with 
1:43 remaining iced the 
Demon cake to give NSU the 
final margin of 25-10. 

Top striper for the Demons 
was Johnson, with 121 yards 
on 25 carries and one TD. 
Hebert it on six of nine tosses 
for 111 yards and one touch- 

Leading tacklers for NSU 
were Stanley Lee, Ken 
Trahant, Sterling Baldwin, 
and Mike Doherty with six 
tackles apiece. 

Pass interceptions were 
made by Jarvis Blinks, John 
Kelly, and Travis Smith. 


Of Southeastern 's 29 
returning lettermen, 16 were 
starters last year, eight on 
offense and eight on defense. 

All in all, the Lions look like 
the perfect target for a team 
like the Demons. SLU has 
returned most of its defensive 
players, but the secondary is 
weak and the linebacker and 
tackle positions lack depth. 

Heading the defensive 
returnees is Kerry Duplessis, 
an all-GSC, all-Louisiana 
defensive back who in- 
tercepted eight passes last 
season. Another experienced 
hand is linebacker Bill Percy. 

The offensive attack against 
the Demons will be provided 
by running backs Don Short 
(5-11, 170) and Gino Marino (5- 
10, 195), and quarterback 
Mark Varisco (6-10, 175). 

One of the most promising 
newcomers is Gene Estapa, a 
quarterback, who provided 
SLU's only touchdown against 
Delta State with a pass to 
Tyronne Williams. 

Estapa's, or Varisco's, 
primary target will probably 
be Raymond Mabfouz, a 5-11, 
180-pound three-year let- 

Should Northwestern 
emerge triumphant in this 
GSC game, and every 
indication is that they will, 
they will clinch the conference 
crown with an impressive 6-0 
loop record 

Southeastern 's only hope 
seems to lie in Northwestern 's 
yielding to that deadly sin , 
pride. Overconfidence, this 
late in the season, could easily 
wreck any NSU chance for a 
bowl bid.

Its purpose would be to work 
out student problems and

representative of their 
student's needs and due to 
recent incidents, they con-

would be beneficial.

Denver, whose latest album "Rocky 
Mountain High" has been on the charts for 
nine weeks and is among the fastest rising 
LP's on the market, appeared here last May. 

He has six RCA albums under his belt. In 
the spring of 1971, his album "Poems, 
Prayers & Promises" rode up the charts and 
"Aerie", his fifth LP, is selling well. 

Chad Mitchell Trio 

The son of Air Force aviator, Denver had 
planned to take up his father's profession 
when he became really involved in the folk 
music craze while attending Texas Tech. He 
proceeded to the West Coast, auditioned at 
Leadbetter's in Los Angeles and was im- 
mediately hired by Randy Sparks, the folk 

In 1965, Denver auditioned for the Chad 
Mitchell spot in the Mitchell Trio, triumphed 
over a vast group of hopefuls and traveled 
and recorded with the trio for nearly four 

Next came his decision to strike out on his 
own, a wise move since he was met with 
almost instant success. 

Denver's music echoes his philosophy: 
"Music is not so much a form of en- 
tertainment, but a life style of people." 

Tickets for this concert are now on sale in 
the Student Union Building at Northwestern 
for $4. Northwestern students will be ad- 
mitted free on their identification card. 

The Contemporary Dance Club's per- 
formance on Friday night under the direc- 
tion of choreographer Sandra Roquemore, 
will open the Christmas Festival Weekend. 

The highlight of the first part of the concert 
is a dance suite entitled "Period of Advent," 
which includes the Jewish women waiting for 
the coming of the Messiah, the selection of 
Mary as the mother of Christ, Mary's con- 
ception of Christ and the blessings she 
receives from Heaven and finally the 
rejoicing period when Mary and the Jewish 
women exult over Mary about to give birth to 

The second party of the concert will reveal 
a grumpy old toy maker who is made, 
through a dream he has, to believe in 
Christmas, a little girl who freezes to death 
when her last match burns out and the image 
of her grandmother is lost; and last an Angle 
chorus praising Christ as the gift from God to 
the world.

Sen. Strom Thurmond 

Politician To Speak 

Sen. Strom Thurmond, Republican from 
South Carolina, will speak at Northwestern 
November 28 in the final program of the fall 
semester Distinguished Lecturer Series. 

Thurmond will address students, faculty 
members and other interested citizens in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium at 9:30 a. m. All classes 
will be dismissed for the program. A question 
and answer session will follow. 

The Northwestern speaker has been a 
farmer, lawyer, school teacher, athletic 
coach, school superintendent, state senator, 
judge, governor, U. S. Senator and 
presidential candidate 

He was elected to the U. S. Senate in 1954 in 
a write-in campaign, becoming the first 
person ever elected to a major office in this 
country by that method. 

By turns Democrat, Dixiecrat, and finally 
Republican, Soiuth Carolina^ three term 
senator, Thurmond is one of the most 
provocative and enduring figures in 
American politics. 

In a kindergarten class at Greenville, S. C, 
a teacher leading her young charges through 
the hymn "Jesus Loves Me" recently thought 
she heard a discordant note in the line that 
reads, "little ones to him belong — They are 
weak but he is strong." She asked the class to 
sing it once more and, sure enough, listening 
closely she discovered that one little boy was 
singing, "They are weak but he has Strom." 

Whether Republican Sen. Thurmond is on 
God's side, or vice versa, is arguable. He has 
been called a hawk, reactionary and a racist 
by his critics. But the kindergarten story, 
now going the rounds in South Carolina, 
illustrates a point that is causing increasing 
concern among the state's Democrats. 

At 68, Thurmond has made an obvious 
comeback from the political shambles in 
which he found himself a year ago after his 
handpicked candidate for governor, former 

Congressman Albert Watson, went down to 
defeat at the hands of a moderate Democrat, 
John C. West. The word around many cour- 
thouses then had it that the senator, 
quarreling bitterly with the Administration 
and unable to pull Watson through, was in 

Now the picture nas changed. Not man> 
South Carolinians think he can ever be beaten 
and the Democrats are awed by his apparent 
popularity. "He's absolutely the best 
politician I've ever run into, bar none," said 
State Democratic Chairman Donlad Fowler, 
a 37-year-old political science professor. 
"Strom is like a cat with nine lives." adds 
Harry Dent, a Thurmond aide for thirteen 
years before becoming President Nixon's top 
political adviser at the White House. "You 
could throw him off the Empire State 
Building and he'd land on his feet every 

How did Thurmond, the ex-Democrat and 
1948 Dixiecrat candidate for President, land 
upright? Talk to Thurmond, his friends and 
enemies in both parties, and you get a strange 
mixture of answers. Most attribute his 
rebound to a reshaping of his image, favors 
from the White House and hard work. 

For most of his 40 years in politics, Thur- 
mond has been regarded as a "fighter" — an 
image that he enhanced by speaking for 24 
hours and 18 minutes (still a Senate record) 
against a civil rights bill in 1957, and by 
wrestling burly, former Sen. Ralph Yar- 
borough to the floor outside a Senate com- 
mittee room in 1964. The playful shoving 
match suddenly erupted in anger. 

He was also known as "independent" who 
wore no man's collar. Both images were 
blurred in 1968 when he became Richard 
Nixon's Southern agent and soft-pedaled his 
disagreements with the Republican nominee. 

Since July 1970, when he accused 

Few senators work harder at pleasing their 
constituents or are in better shape for the job 
as Thurmond. A non-smoking 5-foot 10-inch, 
175-pound teetotaler, Thurmond eats no 
bread or potatoes, but drinks fruit juices 
copiously and often takes three or four 
helpings of okra. He starts each morning with 
50 to 70 nonstop pushups and ten to fifteen 
minutes of weight lifting in the recreation 
room of his McLean, Va., residence. 

He applies the same zeal to politicing. 
"Whenever three or more people get together 
in South Carolina the Senator shows up," says 
his present administrative assistant, Daniel 
J. Carrison, a 54-year-old retired Navy 
captain. Whether it's a wedding, a funeral or 
a Democratic fish-fry, Thurmond usually 
tries to shake every hand and greet each 
woman with a courtly, "How are you, you 
beautiful lady?" 

In his office — decorated with a Con- 
federate flag, a model of the Confederate 
submarine "Hunley" and a Confederate 
cannon ball that was fired into Fort Sumter — 
Thurmond tape-records announcements of 
all federal grants to South Carolina for use on 
local radio stations. He also maintains a 
computer data bank that enables him to send 
letters selectively to South Carolina bankers, 
farmers, doctors or whatever group he wants 
to address. There is a standing rule that no 
consitutent ever visits his office without 
seeing Thurmond-even if he has to be sum- 
moned from the floor of the Senate. "If a 
man waits till election year to campaign" 
Thurmond observes, "he's waited too long." 
"Independent as a hog on ice," is the way 
one friend of Thurmond 's described him. And 
even though Thunnond has criticized Nixon's 
actions during the President's first term, few 
expected Thurmond to desert the President in 
1972. But as in 1968, Thurmond's support 
undoubtedly came at a price. 

Black Studies In Doubt 

The Black Studies Committee of the 
Faculty Senate reported last week to the 
Faculty Senate that they could not 
"recommend the establishment of an official 
major or minor in Black Studies at Nor- 
thwestern State University." 

The committee made a questionnaire to poll 
students' opinions of a black studies program. 
The questionnaire was given out during the 
campus election by the SBA. Only 240 forms 
were filled out even though all students had 
an opportunity to express their views. 

The results of the survey showed the 170 
students were interested in some form of 
black studies program, while 70 students 
were not. With only 240 students voting out of 
about 500 voting in the elections, the com- 
mittee found it difficult to make any positive 
recommendations for a black studies 
program. The number of student., who filled 
out a form was not a high enough percentage 
as compared to the entire student bo dy to 
constitut e a favorable recommendation 
from the committee. 

The committee made attempts to meet with 
various campus groups, the SBA, the United 
Society, the Black sorority and fraternity and 
individu al students. 

The trend, the committee reported, appears 
to be a movement from formal majors and 
minors in black studies and toward isolated 
courses dependent upon student interest. This 
information was revealed through com- 
munication with other schools (East Texas 
State University, LSU, USL and Sam Houston 

Even with some information from other 
schools received, most communication was 
inconclusive. Therefore the committee 
proposed "that a state-wide committee 
consisting of two representatives from each 
of the state colleges and universities be 
established to investigate further the 
desirability of a black studies program." 

Joseph A . Johnson, chairman of the Black 
Studies Committee, said, "Speaking as an 
individual faculty member, I would like to 
encourage any student or student group 
dissatisfied with the conclusions of this report 
to pursue further the feasibility of 
establish ing a black studies program or 
individual courses." 

After students finish gathering information 
for the program, they may turn the findings 
into the SBA and the Faculty Senate. Then, 
both the SBA and the Faculty Senate can turn 
such findings into President Arnold 
Kilpatrick's Office. 

The Black Studies Committee- was ap 
pointed by the chairman of the Faculty 
Senate at the request of President Kilpatrick, 
to investigate the feasibility of establishing a 
black studies program in the state colleges 
and universities. 

The committee members are Joseph A . 
Johnson, assistant professor of English; Dr. 
Craig Lappin, assistant professor of 
sociology; and Dr. Edward Anders^ associate 
professor of mathematics. 

Nationally black studies has become a 
growing concern of most major institutions. 
The importance of some type of black 
studies program is apparent upon the 
examination of national interest on this topic. 
Past attempts could provide an outline of 
action if NSU did eventually provide such a 

During the late 1960's portest demands rose 

from black students on out nation's cam- 
puses. The protested the curriculum which 
did not give them a "relevant education." 
Relevant in that it should pertain to black 
culture and the black student. They wanted 
emphasis on the humanities and history but 
not in its form at that time. There were no 
black authors on reading lists and the true 
role of the black in American history was 

The enrollment of blacks in colleges and 
universities increased by 85 percent from 1964 
to 1966, according to the U. S. Census Bureau. 
The latest figures showed that by the fall of 
1969 the 434,000 blacks in higher educational 
institutions represented six percent of all 
college students. Most of these were attending 
predominantly black schools. 

Most schools about this time realized the 
need for a studies program oriented toward 
blacks. They were dealing with 25 million 
Americans with a special history, culture, 
and range of problems. Most officials feel that 

the study of black men in America is a 
legitimate and urgent academic endeavor. 

No particular pattern was found in who had 
offered black studies and who did not. 
Grambling does and Alabama does not; 
Tulane does and LSU does not. 

The major problem is the lack of faculty 
and the fact that survival of black studies can 
only be insured by the interest teachers exert. 
In most institutions the students control the 
studies, but also control the salaries, merit 
increases and tenure of the teachers. Not 
many wish to teach in such an atmosphere. 

If black studies are to continue to survive in 
the university community, they must make 
some dramatic and long range adjustments. 
Most certainly the issues involving autonomy, 
curriculum and faculty must be dealt with as 
first efforts toward developing more wor- 
thwhile academic respectability in black 

Students Vote Against 
Co-ed Dorm System 

President Arnold Kilpatrick recently 
approved a request by the NSU Housing 
Committee to permit all dormitories to host 
open house on Sunday afternoon. During the 
same week, residents in Varnado and 
Caspari dormitories chose to retain the 
present dorm regulations for the spring 
semester rather than convert to the co- 
educational system* 

Open house will be hosted by all dor- 
mitories from 1:30 p. m. until 7:30 p. m. This 
policy went into effect on Sunday, Nov. 19. 

In a few weeks, a campus-wide survey will 
be made concerning the open house. At this 
time, students will be able to express their 
approval or disapproval of such a program. 

In Caspari dormitory 130 of the 132 surveys 
distributed were returned. According to Bill 
Schwartz, director of housing, 67 students 
opposed the co-educational system for 
Caspari and 63 were in favor of this change. 

Twenty-five of the surveys indicated support 
of this program for the spring semester while 
38 approved the change for next fall. 

Results of the survey conducted in Varnado 
were 46 votes of approval to 84 negative 
votes. Twenty of the affirmative votes were 
in favor of establishing the dorm as co- 
educational for the spring semester and 26 
supported this program for next fall. A total 
of 130 of the 167 surveys given to Varnado 
residents were returned. 

The combined results of the two surveys 
were 151 votes of disapproval as opposed to 
109 in favor of the program. 

According to Schwartz, co-educational 
facilities will not be established in Caspari 
and Varnado dormitories for the spring 
semester, but will most probably be 
organized next fall. The final decision will be 
based on student support, total enrollment 
and the needs of NSU students. 

Pageant Finalists Chosen 

Twenty finalists have been chosen for 
competition in the Lady of the Bracelet 
pageant scheduled for December 6. These 
girls were selected after preliminary rounds 
for the finals to be held in the Fine Arts 
Auditorium at 8 p. m. 

Finalists are Mary Bradford, Roxie 
Cariere, Debra Baca, Lisa Dabria, Lynn 
Mayeux, Gayle Bellman, Linda Davis, 
Georgia Berndge, Judy Miller and Kristie 

Judy Southerland, Ellen Sullivan, Jo Anne 
Sullivan, Lisa Thompson, Roxanne Mc- 
Cormick, Margaret Zulick, Debbie Ar- 
chambeau, Nancy Johnson, Sandra Smith 
and Paula Jones. 

Judging for the event will be based on 
talent, swimsuit, evening gown and personal 
interview, according to Karen Richey, 
chairman for the pageant. Chroeographer for 
the competition is Theresa Reed, and NSU 

student in dance. 

Students will be admitted free on their I. D. 
or tickets may be purchased for $3 at the 
Information Booth in the Student Union. 
Tickets will go on sale Monday, Nov. 27, or 
they may be purchased at the door. 

Senior Exams 

Applications for exemption from the on- 
campus residence requirement for the spring 
semester of 1973 must be made in writing to 
the Director of Housing Office not later than 
January 1, 1973. Application forms are 
available in the Department of Housing, 
R oom 305 of the Student Union Building. 

Those persons presently living off-campus 
are required to renew their application each

This Side 

Of Sanity? 

By Niva Davis 

'Future Shock?' 

A void in the curriculum of this university has 
been recognized by the Faculty Senate and a 
committee was appointed to determine the 
feasibility and sUar 1 .t interest in establishing a 
black studies prr j.-am to fill this void. The 
committee encountered an interest, not towards 
the establishment of a major and minor in this 
area, but a trend towards separate course 
studies which would be determined by student 

Such courses, I feel could be of great benefit to 
Northwestern students. Only through knowledge 
of a certain group's culture and history can a 
person begin to understand anothers actions and 

There has never been a group so stereotyped 
or isolated as the American black. This has 
perhaps been due to their color. No longer can 
we, as a working society use color as an isolation 
mechanism. Our whole society is geared 
towards a unified work force. It is necessary that 
a person know how to co-operate, adjust and 
understand the culture of the different ethnic 
groups around them. The black studies 
program will afford the students with the op- 
portunity to learn this of one such group ot 

In the December 5th issue of the CURRENT 
SAUCE, a survey form will be printed in order to 
give students the opportunity to express their 
views on this subject. Forms will also be 
distributed to students in dormitories. 

The only person who will eventually be hurt by 
the inability to relate and co-operate with other 
cultures, will be the person who refuses to accept 
this aspect of a working society or who refuses 
to understand ethnic differences. Such a person 
should be prepared to face the "Future Shock" 
he will eventually encounter. 

Hot Sauce 

Why can't the library keep up with the 

In HS's opinion, there doesn't seem to be any major 
problem at the library concerning this. Mrs. Dixie Whit- 
tington and Mrs. Lacaze, who work in that department, said 
that with the library's new computer system it is extremely 
unlikely that any mix-ups with the books will occur; 
however, a student must make sure that the card is still in the 
book when he turns it in and that it is turned in at the right 

Why didn't the school allocate enough 
money to have the remaining materials in 
the old library moved by campus 
workers instead of having the fraternities 
do it? 

The fraternities VOLUNTEERED to do it. Mr. Donald 
MacKenzie, librarian, proposed the idea of letting the frats 
do it thinking that it would be a good public service act. So 
Dr. Richard Galloway talked to David Morgan, president of 
the IFC, and all the fraternities volunteered but one. In other 
other words, Mr. MacKenzie didn't beg the frats to do it. 

Why did the POTPOURRI wait until 
after the fraternities paid to have their 
group pictures taken before they told 
them that they were going to have to pay 
to have them put in the yearbook? Also, 
why was the yearbook overbudgeted last 

First of all, the Potpourri was over-budgeted tne year 
before last but the $8,000 deficit wasn't discovered until the 
end of last year. So after the semester had started this vear, 
the yearbook staff met with Dr. Richard Galloway, Vice- 
President of Student Affairs and was advised 
that thev would have to charge the organizations for space. 
Therefore, the staff, itself, didn't know until meeting with 
Dr. Galloway. Kristie Roach, the Potpourri staff member to 
which HS talked to, added that she and the staff regrets 
putting out a sub-standard book this year. 

When the three new vice-presidents 
were promoted did they also receive an 
increase in salary? 

A Turkey's Lament 

By Ronald Sanchez 

In a generation when almost 
all minority groups are 
waving their insistent banners 
of liberation, little nation-wide 
attention has been focused on 
perhaps the most repressed of 
all subjugated groups: the 

Reputed to be among the 
dumbest of all domesticated 
animals, turkeys have banned 
together in a society, the 
Turkey Redemption's 
Operational Tactics (TROT), 
to demonstrate annually on 
the exploitation of and the 
discrimination against the 
bird. The Natchitoches TROT 
chapter has been organizing 
for several weeks to hold a 
massive rally this Thursday, 
Thanksgiving Day. 

In an exclusive interview 
granted this Current Sauce 
reporter, local TROT chair- 
man Teddy Fredan revealed 
the group's structural make- 
up and plans concerning the 
turkey's plight. The private, 
undercover meeting was held 
in a dimly-lit, deserted barn in 
the outskirts of town. 

ME : "Tell me, Mr. 
Fredan, how did the 
organization of TROT actually 

Teddy: "Our main purpose 
with the TROT concept is to 
bring an end to the miscon- 
ceptions placed on the 
turkey's place in society. 
We're tired of being treated 
like second-class animals! 
We're being used by the 
bourgeois American public to 
propagate a holiday system of 
extended weekends, that's 


Me: "But, you say that..." 

Teddy: "There are no 'buts' 
about it. Eversince that time 
when the Pilgrims and the 
Indians decided to have a ball 
at our expense, we've been 
used unmercifully. It's the 
most disgraceful and wanton 
display of exploitation I have 
ever witnessed. Ogled and 
gloried by the pound and 
shape, the only thing we have 
going for us is if we measure 
up to "butter ball" stan- 

Me: "I see your point and 

Teddy: "Well, I hope 
everyone does. You know, the 
materialistic, uninformed 
American consumer just 
considers us a seasonal food 
object. Thanksgiving rolls 
around and everyone makes a 
beeline to the A&P. What's 
wrong with pork the whole 
world can't be Jewish." 

Me: "Don't you think that in 
itself is quite an honor-sort of 
placing the turkey on a 
pedestal? It seems to me..." 

Teddy: "Pedestal! What's 
the grand and glorious honor 
of being stuck on a 24-inch 
platter surrounded with gobs 
of cranberry sauce and stuffed 
with enough garbage to make 
Julia Child cringe. 

Me: "Sure, you have a point 
but what can you..." 

Teddy: "We've got 
leadership! A symbol! What 
Jacqueline Susann has done 
for literature, what Ralph 
Nader has done for General 
Motors, and what Truman 

Capote has done for parties, 
Mark Mitchell, our 
spokesman, can do for us." 

Me: "What action do..." 

Teddy: "Action-I tell you- 
there's going to be plenty of 
action come Thursday. No 
more of this taking the back 
seat— We are standing up to 
be counted! The first thing 
we're going to have is a 
general burning of all those 
binding wrappers that they 
insist on stuffing us in. Then, 
of course, you will be there on 
the steps of the Student Union 
for all this?" 

Me: "Well, actually there's

into her bedroom where she is 
laid out, suffering, on her 
carefully made bed. 


"Yes, Mom?" 

"I'd like to talk to you. I 
think your father and I have 
been very receptive to your 
desires. We've given in to your 
whole etymology schtick— " 

"Ecology, Mom." 

"Yes. Well, we've been very 
nice. We've stopped using 
colored toilet paper while 
you've been home-and, God 
; knows, its' ruining my whole 
color scheme in the bathroom. 
But that's okay. If that's what 
makes you happy. 

"Yes. So we did it for you. 
But there's something I want 
to know, Marjorie. I saw a 
copy of your campus 
newspaper in your room, And 
I couldn't help picking it up 
and reading it- God knows 
you never tell us what's going 
on at that school we're paying 
a fortune to-" 

"Mom, I've told you not to 
go through my room." 

"Well what I want to know is 
this: who is this roughneck 
student boy president on the 
front page shouting about 
tearing down the walls and 
revolution? Tell me, what kind 
of boy is this president of your 
student body?" 

"Beats me, Mom. I don't 
know him." 

"What? So why don't you 
know the president of your 
own student body? It would 
hurt?Howdoyou expect to get 

And a few hours later... 

"Marjorie, I wish to talk 
with you about the problems of 
pregnancy in today's 
collegiate society." 

"Oh, Mom." 

"Listen, Marjorie. Your 
father and I have your best 
interest at heart. You've 
been in college exactly 68 days 
now and I just want to warn 
you-to tell you-how much it 
would disgrace your father 
and I if you were to become 
pregnant out of wedlock. Now 
I don't want you to feel bad, 
but it would give your father a 
heart attack." 

"Oh, you don't have to 
worry, Mom. I'm being 

"Careful ! ! ! Mar jorie-your 
father will have a heart attack 
when he hears this. How could 
you disgrace us...?" 

But parents try. As Marvin 
is about to leave his home and 
return to college, lugging his 
water pipe, wearing a 
sweatshirt with a clenched fist 
printed on it, his mother is still 
wondering about those long- 
sleeved shirts. 

And, as Marvin walks out of 
the house, his parents call 
after him. 

"Urn, Right On, Marvin and 
well write back" his mother 

"Get those grades Up 
Against The Wall, Son." 

"And, Marvin," his mother 
shrieks. Marvin stops in his 

* "Marvin, don't forget..." 
Marvin smiles, clutches his 
umbilical cord, and mutters 
something to himself about 
the Cat's Meow. And then he 
goes off to college.

The Union Board here at 
NSU is an active member of 
the Association of College 
Unions-International. This 
outreaching association 
serves college and university 
unions throughout the United 
States and Canada. The 
statement of purpose, which 
this Association adopted in 
1956 and reaffirmed in 1963, 
says that a union today is a 
building, an organization, and 
a program, all of which 
combine to make a com- 
murfhy center providing 
services as well as the many 
regional organizations. 

In an attempt to keep all 
unions in the nation informed 
on pertinent matters, the 
Association of College Unions- 
International (ACU-I) sends 
various forms of literature to 
its member schools 
throughout the year. One 
publication is the Union Wire 
that is published about eight 
times a year. This four page 
newsletter concerns itself with 
topics on world and national 
issues, student views and 
opinions, editorials, trends 
that are now anDearine on the 
student level, and in- 
formation concerning up- 
coming national and regional 
conferences and meetings. 

Another publication by 
ACU-I is the National 
Bulletin. This bulletin 
published each month, is filled 

with exciting new ideas 
programming Union proje 

It also contains 


foSU ii 
ial si 

teresting articles, rangin?![[} Ce f ° 
from campus demonstration"" 1 
to White House Policy. Ttf 
National Bulletin 
represents growth records i 
various university Unions i 
expanded programs with t 
variety of emphasis. Eack^ o 
edition contains pictures o!»- tM, 
new Union buildings and thi 
facilities these complexefKappa 
offer. Many Unions submiteekend 
articles pertaining to theibvembe 
particular college that coukrmer 
benefit others. iapter 

ACU-I also holds an Infeekend's 
ternational convention each 
spring. This conference offer^ a j u 
delegates from around thtayjghe 
nation a chance to meet antp pa sie 
discuss areas of related in^atedi 
terest. The conference 
touches on areas of discontent- 
surrounding many programs. 
In summary, the ACU-I is a, 
vital instrument in preparing 
and staging Union 
programming. It offers a 
variety of ideas and in- 
formation to its member 
schools and creates a unifying 
bond of association.

students who helped organize 
and work the Bangladesh 
Feast (Ronnie Grappe, Janet 
Vanhoof, Steve McGee, 
Carolyn Doolan and Jack

their support. They fulfilled a 
social responsibility in a

FROM THE ARTIST'S MIND-William Karam of 

Oberlin is shown with one of several abstract 
paintings he will have on display Nov. 27-Dec. 1 
during his one man Senior Art Exhibit in the Art 
Gallery at Northwestern State University. 
"Abstract expression is from the mind of the 
artist," said Karam. "I treat the canvass and 
drawings as a communication of an emotion that I 
have towards life." This will be Karam's second 
one man show. The first was in a private gallery in 
Houston a few years ago. Karam's show at 
Northwestern will open Nov. 27 with a reception at 
6 p.m. to give the public a chance to get 
acquainted with the artist.

NSU Harriers Bow In Meet 

The Northwestern cross 
country team, the previously 
unbeaten crown-bearer of the 
Gulf South Conference lost its 
first meet of the season 
Saturday, November 11, 
finishing 21st in a field of 90. 

Favored North Dakota State 
followed the running of All- 
American Mike Slack to the 
number-one position. Slack 
ran the five-mile course in a 
time of 24.36, finishing ahead 

of the 413 other runners. 

Slack also won the race last 
year, which makes him the 
first repeat winner in the 
history of the event. 

Top finisher for Nor- 
thwestern was Freshman Leo 
Gatson with a time of 25:56, 
for 73rd place. 

The Demons, who had 662 
points, are now 9-1 on the 

North Dakota State had a 

low team score of 84 points. 
Behind the winners were 
South Dakota State 

(143), California State- 
Fullerton (158), Luther 
College ( 188), and Western 
Illinois (236). 

Saturday the Demon 
thinclads trekked to Liberty, 
Missouri, to compete for the 
NAIA cross-country cham- 
pionship. Running for NSU are 
five freshmen and two 

Harter Leads Demons 
In Stunning USL, 24-8 

The Northwestern State 
defense led the Demons to yet 
another victory in Demon 
Stadium November 11 as NSU 
romped to a 24-8 pasting of 
Southwestern Louisiana's 
Ragin' Cajuns. 

Neither team could get its 
stuff together in the first 
quarter, and the second 
quarter was equally 

Uneventful, that is, until the 
NSU defense got hot and 
forced two Cajun fumbles late 
in the second period. Both 
turnovers led to Demon touch- 

With 6:42 left in the half, 
USL halfback Nathan Thorn- 
ton coughed up the leather on 
the Cajun 27. Stan Lee im- 
mediately scooped up the ball 
and hauled it to the six-yard 
line, where he was dropped by 
a whole host of irate Cajuns. 

Four plays later found the 
Demons sitting one foot away 
from a touchdown with only 
one shot at paydirt. 

It was Mike Harter who hit 
the bullseye, diving over 
center for the first score of 
the game. Randy Walker's 
extra point put the home team 
ahead 7-0. 

The Demons then kicked to 
split end Reggie Dupre, who 
returned the ball to the 14. 

On the next play, the ball- 
hawking Demons again rat- 
tled the pigskin loose from a 
hapless USL runner. 

This time it was Danny 

Driscoll who snatched the 
errant ovoid and galloped 
from the 17 to the four-yard 

Once again the Demons 
found themselves in a fourth- 
and-a-foot situation, and once 
again Harter found the end 
zone; this time with a plunge 
over right tackle. Walker's 
PAT split the uprights to give 
Northwestern a 14-0 edge at 

The third quarter closely 
resembled the first, with 
neither team able to 
illuminate the scoreboard. 

Midway through the fourth 
stanza, NSU widened its lead 
to 17-0 with a 21-yard Walker 
held goal after driving down 
to the visitor's four. 

Shortly after that, the 
Ragin' Cajuns put some light 
on their side of the board. 

USL, led by quarterback 
Mark Speyrer, mounted a 
drive starting from their own 
30. Speyrer took to the air and 
guided his team down to the 
Demon eight. From here, he 
hit Reggie Dupre for the six- 

Rolando Surita carried a 
pitchout around the right end 
to make good the two-point 

Northwestern then grabbed 
an onsides kick and drove 
down to the USL five. Harter 
capped of this attack with a 
run through the heart of the 
Cajun line. Walker's boot put 
the score at 24-8, and that's the 

way it wrapped up. 

Leading rusher of the night 
was Mike Harter, with 138 
yards and three touchdowns 
on 20 carries. Donald Johnson, 
NSU's top striper, eked out 
a paltry 23 yards on 16 tries. 

Johnson's 23 yards, 
however, did destroy the 
Northwestern rushing 
records. His career yardage 
now stands at 2,208, which 
exceeds Charlie Tolar's 
record of the late '50s of 2,194 
yards. Another record shat- 
tered by Johnson is Richard 
Ware's season rushing 
standard of 935 yards. In his 
'72 campaign, Johnson has 
accounted for 943 yards, and 
has, by virtue of his per- 
formance Saturday, become 
perhaps the greatest runner in 
the history of NSU.

NSU-0 14 10 - 24

Tiner Defines 
State Politics 

May we 
you with 


1775 K Street, N.W. 
Washington, D C. 20006 

Stanley Tiner, state political 
reporter and editorial writer 
for the Shreveport Times, 
spoke to a joint meeting of the 
newly-formed Political 
Science Society and the 
campus chapter of Sigma 
Delta Chi last Wednesday 
evening. At that meeting 
Tiner stated that a new trend 
in Louisiana politics is taking 

Tiner cited the recent 

gubernatorial and senate 
elections in the last year as 
prime evidence of a growing 
trend. He emphasized, 
however, that the people of 
Louisiana must be alert to all 
state government actions. 
"We don't want to exchange 
an old crooked government for 
a new crooked government," 
he said. 


Dr. Tommy G. Johnson, 
department head of Business- 
distributive education and 
office administration, will 
attend the 50th anniversary 
Convention of the Southern 
Business Education 
Association (SBGA) as a 
Louisiana Delegate. The 
convention will be held 
November 22-24 in Louisville, 

Dr. Johnson is a member of 
the Louisiana Business 
Education Assoc., National 
Business Education Assoc., 
and Delta Pi Epsilon»These 
organizations are affiliated 
with the SBEA. 

Dr. Johnson will attend the 
convention with two other 
* Louisiana delegates. They are 
Cheryl Luke, of USL; and 
Mrs. Rosetta Reed, 
Cooperative Office Education 
Coordinator at Booker T. 
Washington High School, 

Tiner, who traveled with the 
Edwin Edwards campaign 
organization before that 
election last February, said 
that Gov. Edwards may turn 
out to be the most powerful 
Louisiana governor since 
Huey Long. He noted that 
Edwards has a certain 
"charisma" that the people 
like, and it is this colorful trait 
that gives the governor the 
support of most of the state's 
voters. Tiner also suggested 
that Edwards is a shrewd 
politician who is very capable 
of some "arm-bending" when 
necessary legislation enters 
the Senate or House floors. 

Commenting on the cam- 
paigns and election of recent 
state legislators and public 
officials, Tiner suggested that 
the "new politics" of 
Louisiana will eventually 
bring about better govern- 
ment for the state. He cited 
examples of several 
politicians who won their 
respective offices because of 
their honesty andopenness with 
the public in then' campaigns. 

The politicians of this state 
have finally woke up to the 
fact that the people of 
Louisiana are not as ignorant 
as they once seemed." 

Prior to Tiner 's speech he 
and Bob Molcany of the 
Shreveport Journal initiated 
three new members into 
Sigma Delta Chi, the campus 
journalism society. Both men 
are officers of the professional 
chapter in Shreveport. New 
members to SDX initiated 
Wednesday are Sharon Jones, 
Mary Catherine Bounds, and 
□aire Waltner.

"A great deal of this is taking 
place in some parts of the 
country," said Dr. Hunt. 
"This meeting will give music 
executives and heads of 
departments a chance to come 
together and discuss with the 
experts the feasibility and

article, "John « Donne's 
Reconciliation of Opposites in 
'Love's Growth'," will be 
printed either in the spring or

In the article, Johnson 
argues that each part of the

attempt to present a recon-

ysical human love, a union of 

He suggests that in doing 
this, Donne may be poetically

Mr. And Miss NSU 

Election Gives Titles 


Greg O'Quin 

Greg O'Quin and Kathy Breazeale were 
selected as Mr. and Miss NSU in campus 
elections last Friday. Announcement of the 
election results was made during the 
Christmas Lights Concert sponsored by the 
Student Union Governing Board. 

Run-off elections were held between 
O'Quin and Lenny Lewis, and Breazeale and 
Regina Lois Emanuel. Originally nominated 
for the respective honors were O'Quin , 
Lewis, Eddie Hebert and Benny Carter, and 
for Miss NSU, Breazeale, Emanuel, Jo Pease 
and Cheryl Reese. 

O'Quin is a senior accounting major and 
chairman of the student senate. He is also a 
member of Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Eta Sigma, 
Beta Gama Psi and Blue Key. O'Quin 
presently serves as chairman for the 
Distinguished Lecture Series at Northwestern 
and is listed in Who's Who Among Students in 
American Colleges and Universities." 

In the past, he served as freshman class 
president and sophomore class president. 

Breazeale is a senior home economics 
major and is active in associations related to 

l iGame Provides Income 


Sellaro, a grudge football game between Kappa 

1 Davil fegma and Kappa Alpha will highlight The 
Annual Kappa Sigma Benefit Bowl to be held 
December 11 at 7:30p.m. in Demon Stadium. 

S Advance tickets go on sale today on the 
second floor of the Student Union for 50 
cents. The proceeds from the game will be 
used to provide additional income to the NSU 
Intramural Program and to buy a trophy that 

( will be presented to the winning team on a 
/otating basis. 

Tommy Damico, president of Kappa 
Sigma, expressed that the rivalry between 
Kappa Alpha and Kappa Sigma cannot be 
matched by any other fraternities on campus. 
He also stated that there should be some good 
hitting during the game. 

"We feel we're a quicker ball club," 
Damico added, "and we have more talent." 
He believes quickness will come out over 
Kappa Alpha's size, even though the teams 
are evenly matched. 



Students Give Approval 


Of New Dorm Policy 

id of the 

n andl 1,1 a campus-wide survey held last Thur- 
jtudentjiday the students of NSU unanimously voted 
smbers* contui ue with the open house policy, ac- 
8 con- cordin 8 to.Bill Schwartz, director of housing. 

Out of a total of 1716 students voting, 1474 
!tudent ffere f° r a "d 242 were against. There were 
western \ m women voting and 636 men. Out of this, 
degree 508 women voted for and 172 against while 566 
s of Phi men voted yes and 70 voted no concerning 
men ' s open house policies. 

ucation Schwartz termed open house "a tremen- 
;n ious success" and said, "I think it's all 
Kappa, tecause the students are willing to accept 
ihysical * le responsibilities given them. It's also a 
y fopiedit to the student body." 

The program, which has been in existence 
western lor three Sundays will continue every Sun- 
tending k v > however the hours will possibly be 
r. Sam 
of the 
on for 

changed in some dorms after the survey 
results are computed. Open house will be 
held in every dorm on the campus. 

The rules state that all guests must enter 
and leave by the main door and that each 
guest must have a host or hostess to which he 
or she will be responsible to. Also the guests 
must be es corted to the party of the dorm by 
the host or hostess. Schwartz said "To my 
knowledge, there has been no negative in- 
cidents which have occurred and if there had 
been I would surely have known about it." 

Over all Schwartz commented, "I would 
say that the students have voiced a 
unanimous approval of open house." There 
have been no protests from parents of 
students concerning the program. 

Clinton Ebey, coach for Kappa Alpha 
laughingly stated that Kappa Sigma 
"cheating" because they have two graduate 
assistants as coaches. 

He commented, "If they will return oil 
'K' we will not hold any grudges in the game." 
The "K" from Kappa Alpha house was taken 
last week by unknown assailants. 

Both teams will be battling for a trophy 
which was made for the Annual Kappa Sigma 

Benefit Bowl. The winning team will keep 
the trophy for a year until the next bowl 

Dr. Richard Galloway, vice president of 
student affairs, hopes that the students of 
NSU will participate in coming to the game 
because the teams are "getting their own 
brains knocked out for the students." He 
believes these fraternities are performing a 
good service project for the school. ..He 
expressed, "They are not getting anything out 
of it (the game) but publicity." 

Damico expressed thanks to Dr. Allen R. 
Bonnette, associate professor of health, 
physical education and recreation, for his 
work in helping to get the game started. 

The objectives of The Annual Kappa 
Alpha Sigma Benefit Bowl are to give ad- 
ditional money to the Intramural Program 
and to increase the competitive spirit bet- 
ween Kappa Sigma and other campus 

The game will be played by the Louisiana 
High School Athletic Association rules. 
Referees for the game must be certified by 
the LHSAA. Fred Bosarge, dean of men, will 
serve as regulating official of The Annual 
Kappa Sigma Benefit Bowl. 

LSA Submits Campus Resolutions 

At a recent meeting of the Louisiana 
Students Association (LSA) two resolutions 
were adopted concerning the recent distur- 
bances at Southern University. During the 
meeting, U. S. Senator J. Bennett Johnston 

vestern^ted briefly with the students. 

, three- 1 LSA, the successor of the now defunct 

Dallas-£° uisiana Association of Student Body 
wee )j. Presidents, was established in the latter part 

ted to* 1971. 

nter ol Organized by the student body presidents of 
e nextj^rious Louisiana colleges and universities, 
the non-profit, tax exempt group was in- 
d Dr»rporated to represent all students under 
ie Arfmiversity systems. It also promotes student-

cently.. 10 the first resolution LSA recommended 
Art we points to be considered by state officials 
h fle -oncerned with the recent events at Southern 
""niversity. LSA members felt that action 

[urnis ,1 i? on this resolution could prevent similiar 
ygeufli disturbances. 

Un ited The first point adopted by LSA called for 
5 weref'Ptementation of student representative

activities. Also adopted was the employment 
of professionally trained student ad- 

LSA further recommended a more sub- 
stantial and open investigation of events 
surrounding the confrontation at Southern 
University and that the governor employ the 
recommendations of such an investigation. 
LSA also advised that student leaders be 
involved with the investigation. 

The resolution also recognized the need for 
predominately black universities, not for 
segregation purposes, but to provide cultural 
leadership for black communities. 

The organization also voiced its disap- 
proval of the use of violence, specifically the 
use of armed forces to resolve the difficulties 
of universities. 

The second proposal adopted by the LSA 
membership stated that many problems exist 
in state colleges and universities due to the 
lack of uniformity in the state school system. 

Two separate boards of higher education 
presently exist in Louisiana. 

This problem, the resolution read, did little 
to alleviate the problems at Southern 
University. The violent confrontation

Southern University in Baton Rouge resulted 
in the death of two students. Additional 
trouble was witnessed on the Southern 
University campus in New Orleans. 

Upon recognizing this problem, the group 
requested that one board of higher education 
be created by the upcoming Louisiana Con- 
stitutional Convention. 

Members felt that obtaining more uniform 
standards in higher education would benefit 
all students in Louisiana. 

During the meeting, students en- 
thusiastically received an unexpected visit by 
U.S. Senator Johnston. Steve Porter, 
president of LSA, asked the senator if he 
would relate to Governor Edwin Edwards his 
support of the proposed student advisory 
council. The council will advise the governor 
of student attitudes on numerous topics. 

In reply, Senator Johnston said, "I support 
the concept strongly and I will tell the 
governor this." He also expressed a hope that 
some of the upcoming revenue-sharing funds 
would go towards education. 

Talking to the students, he expressed ap- 
preciation of student support during his last 
election. He commented, "Students were 
really the backbone of my campaign. It was 
the shot in the arm we needed." 

Concerning the advisory council, LSA voted 
to recommend to Governor Edwards that 
such a council be composed of one delegate 
from each school of higher education. 

Non-membership in LSA would not limit 
any school from participating on the council. 

It was announced during the meeting that 
LSA had contributed funds towards the 
defense of students suspended from school 
without due process at Grambling University 
in Ruston. The students were suspended as a 
result of their alledged involvement in di- 
sturbances at Grambling. 

The District Court in Shreveport ruled to 
respect the students plea for due process and 
trials have been arranged. LSA by allocating 
defense funds did not, however, comment as 
to the innocence or guilt of the students. 

ID Required 

D. Loran Lindsey, property manager for 
Northwestern advises students that their 
present ID cards will be required this coming 
spring semester during payment of fees. 
Payment of fees following registration, will 
take place in the Student Union Ballroom. 
Students must bring their ID cards. 

her major. She is listed in "Who's Who in

Breazeale has also been recognized as an 
outstanding member of Phi Kappa Phi. 

The 1972-73 Miss NSU is also an officer of 
Alpha Lambda Delta and a member of the 
Sigma Sigma Sigma social sorority. 
Breazeale is active in the Davis Players, 
Purple Jackets, Kappa Delta Pi and various 
SBA committees. 

In the past, she has been 
selected to participate on the Homecoming, 
Winter Ball and Mardi Grao courts. 

The annual election for Mr. and Miss NSU 
was begun in 1956. Nominations for this year's 
personalities were taken throughout Nor- 
thwestern's dormitories.

Entry Places Second 

NSU 's entrv in the American College 
Theatre Festival, "J. B.," recently played on 
the LSU Baton Rouge campus and came away 
with honors. The Pulitzer Prize winning play 
by Archibald MacLeish was chosen as 
alternate to the regional competition which 
will be held in Fort Worth, Tex in January. 

Individual awards were given for ex- 
ceptional performances and technical work. 
In these areas three NSU students were 
honored: John Etheredge and Sally Graham 
for their portrayals of J. B. and his wife; and 
Doug Stannard for his lighting effects. 

Phi Kappa Phi 

Nicholls State's presentation of an original 
script, "These Are My People, This Is My 
Land," was judged as the best play to 
represent Louisiana schools in the regionals. 
If the festival officials decide that it is 
feasible, Northwestern and Nicholls will 
share the chance to win the regionals and go 
on to the National competition in Washington 
D. C. According to Dr. Robert Black, head of 
the Department of Speech and Journalism, 
"We won't know if we are going to Texas or 
not until the middle of December." The 
regional competition will take place January

This Side 

Of Sanity? 

By Niva Davis 

A Question Of Value 

Northwestern students have the opportunity to 
decide the fate of another college tradition in 
the December 6th voting on Amendment number 
11. The amendment calls for an increase of three 
dollars in student funds allocated for the NSU 
yearbook. This increase is necessary for the 
Potpourri staff to put ouj; a book which would be 
comparable to university standards. If this 
amendment is defeated, each organization will 
be required to pay fees in order that its mem- 
bers appear in the yearbook. If publication costs 
are not met and the yearbook is forced into in- 
debtedness, more and more money will have to 
be charged for picture enteries and the overall 
standards of the yearbook will continue to fall 
below that of a university publication. 

For many this publication is the only record of 
college activities and friends. It may also be the 
only source of recognition that many small 
groups receive during the academic year. This 
book also serves as an interest catcher when 
students from different colleges and high schools 
or other campus visitors see the yearbook. Such 
visitors would receive a very poor impression of 
this university if they were shown a yearbook 
with standards which did not meet even a high 

One must consider the possibility of the 
discontinuation of the yearbook if its financial 
situation continues to decline. The proposed fee 
is not outrageous, as compared to other in- 
stitutions. The fact that the fee has remained 
stable for the past two decades is what to me 
seems outrageous. Publication costs have 
ccertainly not remained as stable. 

What really must be determined in the mind of 
each student is the value one places on this 
publication. If you feel that it serves as a 
valuable or worthwhile part of your university

A Lack Of Balance 

There seems to be a difference in the im- 
portance at least one member of the publications 
committee places in Northwestern's two 
publications. The opening of the filing periods for 
the editorship and business manager position is 
open at this time only to Current Sauce ap- 
plicants, not those of the Potpourri. 

This extended filing period from December 5 
until May 1 was opened in order for the 
publications committee to give as much 
evaluation as possible to these positions and to 
the proposed staff members each applicant 
submits. Is this to say that one publication 
deserves more evaluation than another? 


A survey sponsored by the Current Sauce 
dealing with possible student demand for 
courses in Black Studies has been postponed 
until the beginning of the Spring semester. 

In an effort to* alleviate the possibility of 
repeated survey forms by any one student, the 
survey will not be printed in the Current Sauce. 

Other considerations such as preparation for 
upcoming final exams and the short time 
element involved before the closing of the 
semester have also been recognized. The 
decision has been made in order to lend the 
utmost validity to this project. 

WANTED: Editor 

The filing period is now open for 
editorship and for the business manager of 
the Current Sauce for the Summer of 1973 
and the academic year 1973-74. Such 
"notices of intention" will be accepted 
beginning now and up until the close of the 
filing period on May 1, 1973. 

Such notices should include the 
qualifications of the applicants as well as 
the names of their proposed staff mem- 
bers. Dr. Robert S. Wynn, chairman of the 
student publications committee asks that 
applicants for editor include the 
qualifications of their proposed business 
manager. Qualifications of other proposed 
staff members is desirable, but optional. 

Notices should be filed with Dr. Wynn, in 
Room C226 of the Teacher-Education 

Letters To The Editor — 

Dye Supports Fee Increase 

Fellow Students: 

What? Another fee in- 
crease? Personally I don't feel 
we should have another fee 
increase in effect next year. It 
should have been passed last 
year and should be in effect 
this year. A larger ap- 
propriation of funds for the 
Potpourri has long been 
overdue. Students have paid 
$7.00 for a yearbook as far 
back as the early '50s. There 
has also been mention of a 
$ 7.00 Potpourri farther back 
than that. It's not that we're 
getting old, but I can 
remember 5 cent cokes, 25 
cent hamburgers, nickle 
candy bars, a 30 cent pack of 
cigarettes, and $1.00 per hour 
minimum wage. Doesn't it 
seem logical that if all these 
have increased in price that 
photographs's, paper, and all 
the things that go into a 
publication would cost a little 
more, too? 

The next thing that comes to 
mind is the fact that the 
Potpourri staff attempted 
, to publish the same type book 
as it had in the past, and 
wound up $8,000 in the hole. 
This was due to the failure of 



For the past two 
semesters the 
Student Body 
Association has made 
available a COURSE 
survey. Because of 
the substantial 
response from 
teachers, we are once 
again offering this 
service in hopes to 
provide concerned 
teachers an op- 
portunity to evaluate 
their method of 
teaching and testing, 
as well as offer 
students an outlet for 
their opinions. If you 
are interested in 
conducting such a 
survey in any or all of 
your classes, please 
contact the SBA 
office, 357-5296. We 
will deliver the 
surveys upon request.

the amendment to increase 
fees last year. The failure of 
the amendment not only 
caused a large deficit last 
year, but the staff is now 
working with its current 
budget ( $8,000) trying to put 
something together. In order 
to have a decent publication 
the staff had to resort to 
methods used by other 
universities, and had to 
charge organizations to have 
their pictures in the yearbook. 

Sure, this is okay for larger 
organizations, but what about 
the smaller special interest 
groups, honor groups, . and 
service organizations with 
little or no income? Most of us 
belong to some kind of group 
and end up having to pay out 
of our pockets so our 
organization will be in the 

In answer to the question 
why the SBA didn't bail the 
Potpourri out and donate 
funds to pay their debt, the 
SBA simply felt that if 
students voted against a fee 
increase why should we, the 
SBA, spend the students funds 
for something it seemed they 
were so against. But now that 

students realize how 
necessary the increase was, 
and how its failure personally 
affected their pocketbooks, I 
urge you to go out and vote 



Sincerely yours,

Editor Urges 
Student Support 
Of Fee Increase 


Dear Editor: 

The referendum to raise the 
Potpourri fee from $7.00 to 
$10.00 is tomorrow. As a 
student of NSU, I would like to 
urge everyone to vote for this 

The fee has been $7.00 for 
more than 20 years, and 
changing times and prices 
have caught up with and 
engulfed the $7.00 fee. 

If this increase is not 
passed, there is a possibility 
that the yearbook on this 
campus may have to be 
discontinued, and there is the 
certainty that no book com- 
parable in size, and quality of 
materials, or special effects 
(example: color pictures as of 
now cannot be included) to the 
last year's yearbook can ever 
be published again ... . until the 
fee is increased. 

The situation is no one's 
fault — the changing prices 
and times have created it. 

We, the Potpourri staff, 
truly regret that this has 
happened. We have tried our 
best to be as fair as possible to 
everyone involved in our 
present situation. 

It is the students' yearbook, 
and we are students too. As 
students, not staff members, 
we are asking you to vote for 
the amendment! 

We have already shown you 
the situation and told you why 
it exists — now it is your turn . 
If you want a yearbook that is 
depictive of the university 
campus, or a yearbook at all

Clerk of Senate 

South Carolina senior 
senator Strom Thurmond, 
speaking before a sparce 
crowd at the Fine Arts 
Auditorium last Tuesday, 
emphasized the need for 
domestic as well as in- 
ternational peace in a free 
society. In conjunction with 
the Northwestern 
Distinguished Lecturer 
Series, the address by the 68- 
year old republican was the 
third and final presentation of 
the fall semester. 

"I'm convinced that in a 
society you must have 
organization — law and order. 
I am a great believer in 
dissent, but I don't think that 
dissent should be allowed to 
lead to violence," he said. 

Sen. Thurmond, the 
originator of the 1968 anti-Riot 
Amendment that calls for 
federal intervention to 
prosecute those crossing state 
lines to create or agitate 
social unrest, listed sub- 
version, laxity on the part of 
penal administrators, and 
general compassion for 
criminals as the major causes 
for an upswing in civil 

International Scene 

In regard to the in- 
ternational scene, Sen. 
Thurmond expressed his 
desire for a discontinuation of 
all warfare and claimed that 
President Nixon's highly- 
publicized trips to Red China 

and the Soviet Union have 
encouraged an eventual 

*Some way must be found to 
prevent the slaughter of 
millions of people," he 
claimed. "I'm very glad 
President Nixon went to 
Peking and Moscow. If he 
could go to those places, and 
speak to those dictators, and 
that^ what they are, if they 
can tell he wants peace and 
that he has the will and the 
power to remain free, then I 
feel a lot has been ac- 

The ex-Democrat and 1948 
Dixiecrat presidential can- 
didate cited figures in- 
dicating President Nixon's 
successful reduction of U.S. 
troops in Southeast Asia. 
Present military forces in 
South Vietman now number 
approximately 37,000, ac- 
cording to Sen. Thurmond, a 
drastic decrease from the 
peak of 500,000 service men 
just a few years ago. He also 
said that the administration • 
must not neglect the POW's. 

"I still don't trust the 
Communists and until they 
renounce their goal of world 
domination, we must remain 
strong" the conservative 
southern lawmaker stated. "If 
we lose our freedom, we've 
lost it all. Our first priority 
must be to remain strong." 
Big Spending 

Calling for an end to what he 
termed "big spending" the 
South Carolinian claimed that 

the federal government now 
owes a staggering $450 billion, 
with an interest of $12 billion 
annually. "We have more 
resources than any nation in 
the world," he said, "but they 
are not inexhaustable. This 
interest figure represents a 
cost of $2,200 for every 
American citizen." 

He said that he expects 
President Nixon to increase 
his use of the veto to curb this 
spending and stated that tax 
increases should be levied 
only as a last resort. 

"You destroy a man's heart 
and soul when you keep him on 
a welfare roll when he could 
be earning his own way," he 

Sen. Thurmond, one of the 
forerunners of modern 
southern politics, concluded 
that the youth of this country 
hold the greatest opportunities 

for advancement ever 
presented to a society. 

"You live under the greatest 
form of government that 
modern man has ever con- 
ceived of," the senator said. 
He listed the guaranteed 
rights enumerated in the U. S. 
Constitution, the high stan- 
dard of living, and the 
educational facilities as 
factors making the U. S. the 
most prosperous nation in the 

Sen. Thurmond also 
discussed equal rights for 
women, the space program, 
revenue sharing, busing, the 
amnesty issue, and right to 
work laws.

argued. "Kris Kringle is an

Don Scrooge's face grew 
stern with anger. Frankie 
reached nervously at a bulge 
in his upper left hand coat 

"What's wrong with our

dissatisfied?" Don stam- 
mered, his small moustache 
quivering as he spoke. 

"To be honest, I'm afraid

Frankie took off his coat, 
sauntered over to the window,

below. The busy rush of

not to be found. All the colored 
lights of the season were

Frankie knew what he had 
to do. As Don slowly rose from

fingered the revolver with his

"Don, I'm going to give you 
an offer you can't refuse," 
Frankie muttered. 

The next few seconds were a 
perplexing experience for 
Frankie, though he had played 
the scene countless times 

Looking at the massive 
figure slumped over his 
mammoth desk, the man that 
had held him under control for 
such a long time, Frankie 
carelessly threw his trench 
coat over his shoulder. He was 
anxious to leave. 

"Don helped me a lot," he 
said, "but I don't care how 
well I sing this song, I'm going 
to have a rough time 
convincing anyone that Don 
was a 'Goodfather.' " 

The Northwestern Reserve 
Officers' Training Corps 
(ROTC) program, oc- 
casionally referred to on 
campus as Rotsey, allows 
young men the opportunity to 
become commissioned of- 
ficers in the U. S. Army after 
graduation. Under the 
direction of Lt. Col. John R. 
Hennigan, the ROTC 
curriculum offers training in 
military tactics and 
procedure, the structure of 
military service, and the 
purposes of the Department of 

Slightly less than 100 
potential officers are now 
enrolled in ROTC at Nor- 
thwestern, down considerably 
from the all-time high of 368 
set in the 1966-67 school term. 
Capt. Darr F. Sullivan, an 
ROTC instructor, explained 
that this peak enrollment 
occurred during a time of 
maximum military in- 
volvement in Southeast Asia 
and that those likely to be 
drafted preferred entering the 
Army as a ranking officer. 

"Today there is virtually no 
draft motivation with the 
introduction of the lottery 
system determining in- 
duction," Capt. Sullivan said. 

ROTC offers a four year 
curriculum, though a major or 
minor in military science is 
not available at Northwestern. 
Feeling that the cadet needs to 
acquire other skills that can 
benefit both the Army and the 
cadet himself, the ROTC 
program at Northwestern 
prefers that a student pursue a 
non-military oriented aegree. 

During the first two years,

The Northwestern ROTC 
program has set up a 
simulated training camp for 
cadets to learn basic skills 
and abilities. Utilizing map- 
reading exercises and small- 
scale tactical maneuvers near 
Grand Ecore on Saturday 
mornings, the make-shift 
camp has been termed suc- 
cessful in preparing students 
for military service. 

Though ROTC programs on 
various campuses have been 
attacked and maligned, Capt. 
Sullivan feels that there is a 
place for an officers' training 
program on a university 

"I feel that ROTC gives the 
cadet another option to enter a 
career with guaranteed 
employment at an executive 
capacity," Capt. Sullivan 
stated. "If we are to maintain

"It's easy to say that the

don't think that is as true as it 
was two years ago," the Capt. 
continued "Right now our

Demons Edge 
Out SLU, 6-3 

Northwestern squeaked to a 
marginal victory over 
Southeastern Louisiana 
Saturday, Nov. 18, and clin- 
ched the Gulf South Con- 
ference crown. 

The 6-3 Demon victory came 
in the midst of cold, drizzly 
weather, before a small crowd 
of dogged, partisan football 

The Demons took the 
opening kickoff and, behind 
juggernaut Donald Johnson, 
drove deep into Lion territory. 
The SLU defense held after 
that and Randy Walker went 
in to boot his first field goal of 
the evening. The 28-yard kick 
put the Demons ahead 3-0. 

The second period found the 
Lions driving from deep 
within their own territory. The 
slick skin slipped out of the 
grasp of an SLU runner and 
was promptly pounced on by 
Larry Walls. 

The usually-devastating 
NSU ground attack was 
stalled by a stubborn Lion 
defense, and once again 
Walker made his appearance. 
He lifted his second three- 
pointer of the evening, and 

Northwestern held a wobbly 6- 
Late in the second quarter, 

the Lions drove down to the 
home team seven. With first- 
arid-goal from there, 
Doherty's defense dug in and 
Southeastern was forced to 
attempt a field goal. 

Jay Lang came in to split 
the uprights from 23 yeards 
out, shrinking NSU's lead to 
three points. 

After the half, the Lions 
started moving well on the 
highly-touted NSU defense, 
but once again the purple-and- 
white got tough and SLU had 
to try another field goal. The 
kick was partially blocked and 
fell short. 

With Northwestern holding 
on to a slim 6-3 advantage, 
neither team could generate 
much of an offense after that. 
The seond half was relatively 
uneventful and the score 
never changed after halftime. 

This win gave the Demons 
an 8-2 record on the season, 
and their first conference title 
since 1966. It was their first 
time to bear the Gulf South 
Conference scepter.

Behind the hot shooting of

Ball connected on 11 of 20 
field goal attempts and three

top scorer of the night.

Sophomore David McLeod, 
who led Northwestern to the 
Gulf South Conference cross 
country championship 
November 4, has been named 
to the all-Gulf South Con- 
ference cross country team. 

McLeod, a track star in 
Arlington, Tex. while in high 
school, had the winning time 
of 21:26 over the four-mile, 
164-yard in the conference 
meet. The meet was held over 
a hilly course near Troy, Ala. 

Northwestern 's cross 
country team finished the 
season with a 9-2 meet record, 
but the two losses came in the 
NAIA national meet and the 
NCAA college division 
national championship. 

Malone Is 
Winner In 

The Demon cross country 
team took its second loss of the 
season Saturday, Nov. 18, by 
finishing 25th in a field of 41 
teams in the NAIA National 
Cross Country Meet in 
Liberty, Mo. 

Malone College took the 
title with a low score of 92 
points. Mike Mixon, of Pitt- 
sburgh, Kansas State, had the 
best time, 24 minutes, 29.4 
seconds, over the hilly, five- 
mile course. 

Top finisher for NSU was 
freshman Randy Moore, out of 
Captain Shreve High, who 
placed 71st. There were 320 
competitors in all. • 

put the Demons ahead 61-59. 
The home team never

Northwestern widened its

hit for 10 tallies. 

Fort Polk rolled to an easy 
130-94 victory over the 

Demons freshman team in the

Fort Polk was the former 
Nicholls star Cleveland Hill, 
with 18 points and 13 rebounds.

Does President Kilpatrick have 
Varnado's old piano, which was bought 
with school funds, in his home while 
Varnado has one that doesn't function 

Yes, he does. President Kilpatrick told HS that the 
Steinway, which was bought around 1930, is in his home right 
now along with his other furniture, most of which was bought 
with school funds. He explained that the reason the piano 
was taken out of Varnado is that it was felt that the piece was 
too valuable to be left out for just anyone to play around with. 

Kilpatrick added that NSU has a contract with a music 
company (Gilbert Phillips Co.) to tune up the pianos on 
campus. So, if that is the problem with the one in Varnado, a 
person should contact the Music Department and report the

Why doesn't Taylor out of Dallas

and that is how the publishers are chosen. 

Coach George Doherty, who 
guided Northwestern to the 
Gulf South Conference 
championship, and Demon 
halfback Donald Johnson won 
top honors on the 1972 all-GSC 
football team selected by the 
league coaches. 

Doherty, taking over as 
head coach last May in what 
was to be a rebuilding year at 
Northwestern, surprised 
everyone by taking a 
sophomore and junior- 
dominated team to an 8-2 
overall record and a perfect 6- 
conference mark. He was 
tabbed as "Coach of the 

Johnson, a 172-pound senior 
speedster from Thibodaux, 
was selected by the coaches as 
the league's "Offensive 
Player of the Year." 

The Demons, picked to 
finish sixth in a pre-season 
poll of the coaches, also placed 
offensive guard Mike Boyce, 
noseguard Kenny Trahant and 
punter Randy Walker on the 
18-man all-star squad. 

Johnson was simply the 
class running back of the 
league. He sped for 887 yards 
on 159 carries for a 5.6 yard 
average per try-the best 
average ever in the league for 
a single season. He also scored 
six touchdowns, including four 
from 38 yards out or longer. 

His 84-yard TD run against 
Delta State was the longest 
ever by a GSC runner. 
Johnson also set a league 
record for his 184 yards 
rushing in a designated 
conference win over Nor- 
theast Louisiana. One of 
Johnson's other big runs of the 
season was a 66-yard TD jaunt 
that helped Northwestern 
upset McNeese 25-10 in Lake 

Walker, the versatile junior 
out of Bossier City, led the 
GSC in punting with a 41.1 
average on 60 boots. His 
longest was a 68-yarder 
against Delta State. Walker 
also set a new league record 
for his 49.1 average on seven 
punts in the 12-0 win over 
Delta. Randy also booted 13 of

Coming off the heels of a

kickers in scoring with 53 

A 200-pound junior from 
New Orleans-Holy Cross, 
Trahant was Northwestern 's 
No. 1 tackier with 112 stops in 
10 games. He was the leader of 
a Demon defense that allowed 
only 8.1 points and 132 yards 
rushing a game. Both figures 
were best in the conference. 

Bovce. a 240-pound 
sophomore who played his 
high school football at Baton 
Rouge High, was the most 
consistent player in the 
Demon offensive forward 
wall. Despite playing one 
game with a broken rib, Boyce 
made the key blocks all season 

that gave Johnson and 
fullback Mike Harter the 
running room they needed. 
Disregarding Nor- 

thwestern's domination of the 
league, the GSC coaches 
placed seven Livingston 
University players and six 
gridders from Delta State on 
the all-star squad. Livingston 
finished second to Nor- 
thwestern in the league with a 
5-1 loop mark while Delta had 
a 4-2 league record. 

Northwestern and Troy 
State each had four players 
selected while Southeastern 
Louisiana had three. Two 
players each from Jackson- 
ville State and the university 

of Tennessee-Martin rounded 
rounded out the squad. 

Three of the Demons' top 
players, linebacker Gordon 
Boogaerts, defensive tackle 
Larry Walls and safety John 
Kelly, failed to make the 
team. Incidentally, Kelly led 
the league in pass in- 
terceptions with seven.

Knotts said that this method

out a ballot slip. Among the 
things the student will have to 
know is his ward and precinct 

The ballot box plans are a 
result of a move to get more

to sex discrimination in 

"I have given a number of 
speeches on sex 
discrimination to various 
groups, such as the Virginia 
Bar Association, Labor Law 
Committee, the American 
Management Association, as

No Survey Taken 

According to Jo Pease, president of SUGBj 
the entertainment survey usually used to poll 
students' choices of big name performers will 
not be used this semester. 

The surveys which have been used in the 
past listed entertainers and their prices. 
Students were asked to choose the ones that 
they would like to haveatNSU. 

Pease said that the survey caused many 
misconceptions in that the students did not 
always realize that many entertainers listed 
were not available on the dates for which 
they were needed. 

The board decided that to avoid these 
problems this semester booking of en- 
tertainment would be primarily left up to the 
Entertainment Committee. 

Wilson Directs Play 

The Entertainment Committee is made up 
of 25 to 30 people. Students interested in 
joining may apply and will be interviewed by 
a group composed of members of the com- 

The Open Forum held last Dec. 5, was 
another source of student opinions. Students 
who attended were given an opportunity to 
express their feelings on issues concerning 
the campus; entertainment included. 

Pease explained that verbal com- 
munication with each student is impossible in 
order to dispel any misunderstandings caused 
by the survey. So to avoid these problems the 
survey will not be used this semester. 

However, the survey has not been shelved 
completely. Pease said that it may be used ' 
again next semester. 

'The Old Ladies 1 

James Wilson will direct the first major 
spring production of the Department of 
Speech and Journalism. "The Old Ladies" is 
an adaptation by Rodney Ackland of a novel 
by Hugh Walpo. 

The term "psycho-drama" was used by 
Wilson to describe his show. The story is 
concerned with three "little old ladies" living 
out their lives in a boarding house in 
Pulchester County, England. 

The role of May Berringer will be played by 
Susan Higgs, a veteran of the Summer 
Repertory Company. Lucy Amorest is played 
by Debbie Green. Green last appeared in 
"J. B." and "Chamber Music." Clare Mon- 

crief plays the third lady Agatha Payne. 
Moncrief has appeared in "J. B.," "Chamber 
Music," "Three Penny Opera" and "Auntie 

Wilson's past directorial assignments in- 
clude "Waitin for Godot" and "Endgame." 
He has appeared in "The Odd Couple,"

stage, and was also a member of the 
NSU Summer Repertory Company. 

The production dates for "The Old Ladies" 
are Feb. 21-24, and the box off ice will be open 
from 1-5 p. m. every day during the week of 
the performances.

Is She A Year Late? 

Peace In 1974 

"Final peace negotiations for the United 
States will be completed in the year 1974," 
said renowned seer Jeane Dixon, in regard to 
American military intervention in the 
Southeast Asian conflict. •'There will be a 
cease-fire before that time, but I believe 
Henry Kissinger's life is not programmed to 
achieve everlasting peace for this country." 
Mrs. Dixon spoke last Tuesday night before 
a large Northwestern audience as part of the 
university's Distinguished Lecture Series. 

Ironically, Mrs. Dixon's remarks coincided 
with President Nixon's announcement that 
special adviser Kissinger had penned an 
agreement with the Hanoi government for a 
cease-fire and a complete withdrawal of U.S. 
troops upon release of the P.O.W.'s. 

Mrs. Dixon, who stunned the world with 
her accurate predictions of the 
assassinations of John F. and Robert 
Kennedy, and civil rights leader Martin 
Luther King, said that American in- 
volvement in the Vietnamese political strife 
began when Madame Nhu journeyed to 
Washington D. C. to gain aid for her 
husband's government in South Vietnam. 
While Medame Nhu was conferring with 
American officials, Mrs. Dixon claimed, a 
"cleverly contrived plot by our opposing 
forces" resulted in the ouster of the Nhu 
regime and the murder of President Nhu? 

According to Mrs Dixon, her predictions 
come about as revelations, forecasts, and 
visions. In an interview prior to her Nor- 
thwestern address Mrs. Dixon said that her 
talents were "multi -faceted" with 

By Ronald Sanchez 

revelations appearing as preordained 
messages from God and forecasts and 
visions coming as signs from telepathic 
powers. She said that she had received 
approximately seven revelations in her 

"The assassination of President Kennedy, 
the Ecumenical Council, and the Child in the 
East all came to me as revelations,*' Mrs. 
Dixon explained. "I've had perhaps seven 
revelations but I'm not revealing all of them. 
They would only serve to frighten people." 

She added that President Kennedy's life 
was predetermined to end in the Dallas 
assassination but that Robert Kennedy and 
Martin Luther King could have been saved. 
Robert Kennedy, she asserted, would have 
eventually become Chief Executive had he 
waited to make his presidential bid in 1976 
when "the timing would be right for such a 

One of Mrs. Dixon's most widely quoted 
prophesies concerns a revelation she 
reportedly received on February 5, 1962. A 
child born in the Near East on that daie, she 
envisioned, would "bring the multitudes of 
the earth together in spiritual unity." 

"The Jewish people are going to say that 
this is the coming of their Christ and the 
Christian people will say that this is the 
second coming of Christ and in a sense they 
both will be right," she said. 

Mrs. Dixon went on to explain that this 
child, from whomshe periodically experiences 
thought vibrations, will appear first in Rome 
and then in Jerusalem. She has sensed that 

he will after a time abuse his power much 
like Adolf Hitler used his European 
conquests for political domination but that he 
will eventually develop his talents of 
leadership. The precise time of his public 
emergence could not be determined. 

At her first international press conference 
in 1949, Mrs. Dixon predicted that the 
Congressman Richard M. Nixon of California 
would one day become President of the 
United States. "I meditated and picked up his 
program ... his destiny ... his reason for 
being," Mrs. Dixon continued. "These are 
tedious times in which we live, but I believe 
President Nixon has strong inner faith." 

The Kennedy clan has traditionally 
emitted the strongest thought waves to Mrs. 
Dixon. In regard to Edward M. Kennedy's 
future political aspirations, Mrs. Dixon said, 
"If he wants the Democratic nomination in 
1976, it's his for the asking. But I don't think 
he will be interested. Of course, he can 
change his mind." Mrs. Dixon also foresees a 
remarriage for Ethel Kennedy in 1977 to a 
long-time family friend. 

"Foresight is my gift of prophecy," the 
author-prognosicator stated. "Our lives are 
programmed from the moment we are born 
to the moment we die and our God-given 
talents are determined. The will of humanity 
cannot change the will of God." 

Mrs. Dixon, a firm believer that she was 
granted by a Supreme Deity the power to 
witness future events, concluded that "my 
dream above all things is to serve the Lord 
through my talents." 

Artist Series Presents Windom 

William Windom 

By Jack Skaggs 

William Windom, probably best known for 
his Emmy Award winning role as the lead of 
NBC-TV's 1969-70 series "My World and 
Welcome To It," will be presented in concert 
Jan. 31 by the Natchitoches-Northwestern 
State University Artist Series at 8 p.m. in the 
Fine Arts Auditorium. 

In a two hour presentation Windom has 
selected stories, reports and fables of James 
Thurber, whose work served as the basis for 
"My World And Welcome To It." 

In the first act, Windom appears more or 
less as he did in "My World And Welcome To 
It" and largely utilizes material in which 
Thurber included himself. 

In the second half Windom appears in a 
tuxedo and speaks in the first person as the 

"The charm, wit and truth of Thurber's 
work unfolded slowly to me," Windom stated. 
"My consumption of his published works is 
closer to ninety percent now. The re-reading 
for memorization has unearthed additional 
nuggets of delight and style and selective 
workmanship that have completed my total 
enslavement to the way the mind of this 
man worked." 

Thurber, master writer who has his readers 
jumping back and forth from reality to 

unreality, described himself as one who "fell 
down a great deal ... because of a trick he had 
of walking into himself." The New York 
Times proclaimed him as "master of the 
meditative phrase and the sneak attack of 
understatement. Tne gravely quiet prose 
becomes as unexpectedly conquering as a 
second vodka martini." 

Windom has been quite successful in 
television. He played the male lead in "The 
Farmer's Daughter" on ABC-TV. Other 
television appearances of more than routine 
interest include the leads in "Big Fish, Little 
Fish" for National Educational Television, 
"They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar" for 
Night Gallery and segments of "Marcus 
Welby,M.D."and "All in the Family." 

He played the Secretary of State in "The 
Man," the President of the United States in 
"Escape From the Planet of The Apes," a 
dynamite salesman in "Fool's Parade," a 
civic blowhard in "Brewster McCloud" and 
the district attorney in "To Kill A 

"My association with "My World ... And 
Welcome To It" in 1969-70 whetted my appetite 
for a purer version of the commercial 
product, better-than-average though it may 
have been, that was captured on film." said 

Program To Aid International Students 

By Rodney Chandler 

Dr. Richard Galloway, vice president of 
student affairs and chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Foreign Students at Northwestern, 
revealed plans at a recent Faculty Senate 
meeting to begin a program to better 
acquaint international students with the 
university community and country. 

Dr. Galloway feels that this small minority 
has been overlooked too long. In his opinion 
the native students here do not have a 
negative attitude towards foreign students, 
but one of "indifference." Through the 
cooperation of various organizations and 
individuals, Dr. Galloway feels that foreign 
students will be more relaxed and thus 
contribute more. 

Efforts planned are three-fold in 
organization, involving the administration, 
community and university. 

There is a family-host program involving 
Natchitoches residents. Students from abroad 
if they desire, are assigned to a host-family 
for a more personal means of orientation. 

According to Dr. . Galloway this 
program has been extremely successful. 
The family-host program is under the 
direction of Agatha Newitt, director of the 
International Office, and Mrs. J. Livingston 
of Natchitoches. 

Dr. Galloway stated that plans are un- 
derway for special core requirements for 
international students consisting of a special 
course in English and one in orientation 
aimed at the needs of the foreign students. 

Dr. Galloway commented that there are 
many reasons why students from abroad 
come to Northwestern. One student repor- 
tedly met a missionary in his country who had 
attended NSU and decided that Nor- 
thwestern was the place for him. Some in- 
ternationals are influenced by Nor- 
thwestern 's status as being one of the oldest 
institutions of higher' learning in the South. 

Dr. Gallowav commented that efforts will 

be made in the future to recruit more foreign 
students to the campus. He feels that the 
blending of cultures "helps both foreign and 

domestic students become more open- 
minded, educated and realize that the globe 
is becoming smaller every day."

\This Side 

Of Sanity? 

By Niva Davis 

Drop System Revised 

There are several topics which have been discussed at the 
last faculty senate meeting which could be of considerable 
interest to the students of Northwestern. One of these 
concerned the drop system now utilized. 

There seemed to be a wide dislike of the present drop 
system which, from reported cases, has easily lent itself to 
abuse. Steps to alleviate this problem have led to the possible 
shortening of the time period in which one can drop a class. 
The proposed cut would shorten the current 18 week time 
period to a period lasting from twelve to thirteen. Students 
will be forced to decide whether or not to drop a class shortly 
after mid-term. This does not seem to be in the best interests 
of the majority of students. In some classes students are 
given only a mid-term and a final exam. One cannot always 
judge the first half of a semester on the same basis as the 
second. Term papers, oral and group reports, class projects 
and other such course requirements are often not due until 
the latter half of the semester. In some cases the topics of 
such papers are not given to students until after mid- 

It would be understandable for the drop period to end one 
or two weeks prior to final exams in order for ad- 
ministrative needs to be taken care of before finals. But, I 
think a student should be allowed as long a time period as 
possible to decide his chances of receiving the grade he 
desires in a class. 

A change now being discussed would help to alleviate 
students who abuse the drop system. It involves the cases in 
which students do not attend classes regularly. The 
student's teacher, advisor, and academic dean would meet 
and discuss whether or not the student could in any way 
fulfill the requirements of the course under these conditions. 
If it were decided that he could not, he would be dropped from 
the class, most probably with a W on his transcript. This 
would seem to be a fair way of dealing with such abusers of 
the system. 

Abuse of the drop system has resulted in the possible 
revision of this system. Granted, some revisions are 
necessary. But revisions dealing with the alleviation of 
abusers is what is needed; not a shortening of the time 
period. Should what is beneficial to the majority of students 
be sacrificed by the few who chose to abuse these benefits? 

Student Rights? 

A thin line is sometimes drawn when it comes to the 
question of whether or not a student's rights have been 
violated. In a recent incident involving a health instructor, 
who during registration, asked men students who wished to 
take his class, but who wore long hair to either cut or trim 
their hair or else change instructors, this does not seem to be 
one of those times. 

According to the university policies on student dress, "It 
shall be the responsibility of each NSU student to dress in an 
appropriate and acceptable manner at all times. 

While the subjects of dress and personal grooming are 
matters of individual choice, when these matters are 

Let it be understood that this faculty member stated that 
he told students that he PREFERED that they cut their 
hair before they entered his class. He also added that he did 
so in a jocular manner. He would even go over the students' 
schedules with them and show them other instructors under 
which they could take the same course, usually during the 
same time period. During registration, with the rushing tide 
of students and other factors involved, this might not always 
have been possible. In either case>an opposite view of the 
instructor's presentation was given by one of the students 
who was asked to cut his hair. 

The instructor acknowledged the fact that there were no 
set regulations on the length of a student's hair, and that he 
could in no way actually forbid a student to enter his class. 
His reasons for his actions were based strictly on health 
factors. He believed that young men who have long hair do 
not always spend the necessary grooming time which is 
required in order to maintain a healthy scalp. He also added 
that he did not understand why these students did not want to 
take other instructors who did not believe as strongly as he in 
this matter. Their classes, the majority of times, he said, 
were offered at the same hours. 

The question here seems to be if the instructor had any 
basis even in telling students that he ' 'prefered "that they cut 
their hair before attending his class. Instructors must realize 
the weight of their positions. Even a suggested preference 
from an instructor sometimes is understoond as a 
requirement. No matter what an instructor might tell a 
student who refuses his preference, until that student knows 
an instructor well enough to know him as a fair person, I'm 
positive that student will be worried about the outcome 
of his grade. This would be an unnecessary condition which 
could easily be avoided in this case. 

I do not believe that such an incident belongs on a 
university level. An instructor may have different beliefs 
from his students. He may even be in the position where 
his beliefs coincide with his teaching matter and is in 
the position to teach students the very valid reason for his 
beliefs, as in this case. But, under university standards, an 
instructor's beliefs should not interfere with or exclude any 
student from receiving the type of instruction guaranteed to 
him by the policies of the university.

Like anyone else who has 
assumed a new position of 
responsibility, I have laid out 
goals that I hope to see ac- 
complished by the close of this 

Those familiar with my 
efforts of the past will see little 
change as far as anything 
drastic affecting all students. 
With an attitude that all 
students are to be considered 
and represented by their SBA, 
the SBA will continue to 
function in this frame of 

I do intend to initiate 
greater student participation 
and awareness in the 
machinery at NSU. Apathy is 
an age old problem and not 
unique only to Northwestern, 
yet the attitude of most is to 
get out of Northwestern in- 
stead of trying to get 
something out of one's four 
year stay here. 

I don't contend this to be so 
much a student problem, but 
rather an overall problem of 
this institution. By now most 
have reviewed the ex- 
periences of last semester and 
have seen the failures and 

weaknesses of an expensive 

What is obviously needed is 
a forum between students, 
faculty and administrators to 
air weaknesses concerning the 
overall purpose and objective 
of this institution. ..that of 

The teacher evaluation 
forms have proven to be a one- 
way street, and more often 
than not are requested by 
Northwestern's more capable 

Semantically "forum" is not 
to imply general physical 
meeting between the 
previously mentioned groups, 
but rather a classroom, social 
and general openess and 
expressiveness of ideas. 

More concretely the SBA 
and faculty senates can be the 
means of communication 
between these bodies. 

To further the establish- 
ment of .Northwestern as a 
living learning center, the 
area of academics should 
become as progressive as the 
recent changes make in the 
area of social factors im- 
plemented within the last

Right Time 

Doctor Psychic 
By Rick Mitz 

Friday night eight o'clock, blindfold them 

Hundreds of people slumped 
into plastic bump-back chairs 
in a hotel ballroom. Stumpy 
stout and starched old ladies- 
men with pot bottoms and 
bellies with horoscopal hope- 
young men in short fur coats 
and long fur hair-hurried 
husbands worried wives and 
purring babes-wenches 
wrenching down ice-cubed 
Scotches-bloodied Marys 
looking for answers-waiting 
for words from Doctor 

Three-fifty admission. They 
paid the same price for ZVz 
hours of Fiddler on the Roof 
for this fiddler on their roofs. 

They wait for Dr. Cure-AV ; 
their future in the palm of his 
hands; their past in his 
pockets; their present in his 
know-all mind; their presence 
in his presents to them — a 
little bit of prediction, a slice 
of truth, $3.50 skeptics on a 
Friday night waiting to be 
proven wronged. 

Friday night eight-twenty 
o'clock. Somebody's young 
blond boy walks out to an- 
nounce to the crowd that Dr. 
Richard Huntington — star of 
hotel ballrooms, private 
consultations and black and 
white advertisements in the 
movie sections of both of the 
Dailies — is — "gasp" — late- 
dead-ill. The mind's multiple 
choice game is open for fate. 

So this is Dr. H with his 
black-buttoned suit and Dick 
Cavett face, sparkly eyes on a 
small man with a small head. 
How could it ever hold all that 
information? How could he 
ever tell us everything we 
always wanted to know about 
everything? And no one's 
afraid to ask. 

"Write me questions on 
paper cards about anything. 
Sign your name. Tape my eyes 
so I can see the stars and

passes them over his Johnson

to be involved in a rock 
festival in June or July... 
aren't you?" No... no... yes." 
"It's going to be another

the first two sites... I

In union: smile. Kahuna 
equals good luck. We should 
all have such good luck.

... and twenty-four hours 
later, little Dr. Huntington sits 
eating musk melon in his hotel 
room talking to the 
depressing press. "Where 
were you born ... how old are 
you.... are you married ... so 
you're single then... how-do- 
you-do-it" when a how do you 
do would have been enough. 

Thirty-year old Dr. H 
smiles and tries to be friend- 
ly, but why don't they ask 
what he really wants them to 
ask ( and so why doesn't he 
make them?) and why can't 
he answer what he really 
wants to answer?

development and federal programs at Northwestern will 
serve as coordinator on campus for the Gulf Coast Research 

Under a teaching affiliation, the Ocean Springs, Miss, 
laboratory offers instruction in the marine sciences to NSU 
students. GCRL also is a full-time marine research agency 
for the State of Mississippi. 
Dr. Johnson To Serve On Program 

Dr. Tommy G. Johnson of Northwestern has been selected 
to serve on the program during the annual convention of the 
National Association for Business Teacher Education. 

Chairman of the Department of Business-Distributive 
Education and Office Administration, Johnson will be a 
program participant at the national meeting for the second 
consecutive year. 

Scheduled for Feb. 21-24 in Chicago, the convention will 
attract business education leaders from colleges and 
universities across the United States. 

Johnson will serve as assistant chairman of the session on 
"Strategies for Coping with, Strengthening and Funding 
Business Teacher Education Programs." The National 
Business Teacher Education Association is a division of the 
National Business Education Association. 

Dr. Johnson was also elected president of the Louisiana 
Business Education Associatioin recently. 

The LBEA is a branch of the Louisiana Teachers 
Association and is made up of hundreds of high school and 
college business education and distributive education 
teachers, supervisors and administrators. 

During the past year, Johnson served as the College 
Representative on the executive council of the LBEA 
and will serve this year on the executive council of the 
Louisiana Vocational Association. 

Special Classes Offered 

Northwestern is offering special off-campus classes this 
spring semester in Shreveport, Alexandria, England Air 
Force Base, Fort Polk Jena Mansfield, Winnfield 
Marksville and Monroe. 

The classes are being coordinated by the Northwestern 
Division of Continuing Education and they will be taught by 
regular members of the NSU faculty. 

Dr. Hoyt Reed, director of continuing education for North- 
western, said more than 100 classes will be offered away 
from the main campus during the spring. 

Dr. Kruse Continues Research 

Dr. Dwayne N. Kruse, associate professor of biological 
sciences, is conducting a long-range research program 
aimed at preventing diseases in commercially-grown 

Utilizing funds provided through the Office of Sea Gran! 
Development at Louisiana State University, Kruse has 
identified a dozen types of diseases since his research started 
four years ago. 

"After we identify the diseases, then we are charged with 
the responsibility of learning what each does to the shrimp 
and how they are transmitted to other shrimp," he said, 
Kruse is also working to develop means for controlling the 
shrimp diseases. 

Because of the growing worldwide demand for shrimp, 
about a dozen companies, representing the bulk of 
America's food industry are beginning to raise shrimp on an 
agricultural basis by growing them in ponds in much the 
same way that catfish are grown commercially. 

Most shrimp ponds are constructed in areas near coasffl 
waters. Louisiana, with its vast area of swamplands and 
estuarine waters, is an ideal location for shrimp ponds. If 
diseases which effect shrimp in the ponds can be controlled, 
the state's shrimp industry will increase tremendously.

parishes will participate Feb. 3 in the annual convention of

Two seven-foot high jum- 
pers and a pair of world 
record holders in the 60-yard 
dash highlight the most 
talented field of college 
performers ever assembled 
for Northwestern State 
University's Graduate 'N' 
Club Indoor Track Meet. 

The ninth edition of the 
prestigious event will be held 
Friday and Saturday inside 
Prather Coliseum on the NSU 
campus. High school athletes 
will perform the first day and 
the college competitors take 
over the scene Saturday. 

Willie McGee, who owns a 
share of the 100 and 60-yard 
world records, will be joined 

in the meet by teammate and 
world record holder Jerry 
Sims. Both stars run for 
Alcorn A&M. McGee ran his 
9.1 century in 1968 while he 
and Sims clocked 5.9's in the 
1971 'N' Club meet. 

At least four other entries in 
the 60 have run 6.1 including 
Larry Buie of Mississippi 
State, Barney Cobb of LSU, 
Aaron Harris of Arkansas 
AM&N, and Larry Gene of 
Northeast Louisiana. 

Baylor's Gary Kafer (7-0 l 4 ) 
and Northeast's Warren 
Shanklin, another seven- 
footer, will be shooting for the 
meet record of 6-9 set by Jesse 
White of Harding College in 

1968. .Another entry is Ted 
Heroin an of LSU, who has 

gone 6-11. A darkhorse in the 
event could be Tom Pond 1 6-9 1 
of Tulane. 

Records are also expected 
to be shattered in the 440-yard 
dash. 880-yard run. the mile, 
shot put, pole vault and long 

Five stars in the quar- 
termile have run 47.1 or better 
outdoors, which is con- 

siderably better than the meet 

record of 49.7 or better out- 
doors, which is considerably 
better than the meet record of 
49.7 set by Fanahan Mc- 
Sweeney of McNeese in 1970. 
.Among the top entries are 

Charles McManus 1 46.8 ) and 
Richy Brittain i47.0* of 
Stephen F. Austin. Ralph

Franklin ( 58-2 of Stephen F. 
Austin will do their best to 

exceed the 54-11 shot put throw 
by Jim Duncan of Harding in 
1970. That is the meet record. 

Louisiana Tech's Ricky 
Stubbs, who finished fourth in 
the NCAA major college meet 
last spring, and freshman 
Larry Shipp of LSU have both 
run 7.1 in the 60-yard high

Bulldog Mentor 
To Referee Meet 

Intramural Director 
Releases Spring Slate 

Jimmy Mize, assistant 
athletic director and head 
tract coach at Louisiana Tech 
will serve as the referee for 
Northwestern State 
University's ninth annual 
Graduate 'N' Club Indoor 
Track and Field Meet Feb. 2-3. 

The announcement was 
made by Meet Coordinator 
and Northwestern Head Track 
JDoach Jerry Dyes. 

Mize, now in his 26th year at 
Tech, has become one of the 
most widely respected men in 
his field. Opposing coaches 
and athletes as well as his own 
athletes agree that his manner 
with people is second to none. 

Three of Mize's athletes 

participated in the national 
NCAA major college track 
and field championships in 
May. Hurdler Ricky Stubbs 
copped a fourth place finish. 

Before going to Tech, Mize 
began his coaching career as 
an assistant at Ruston High in 
1938-39 under L. J. "Hoss" 
Garrett. He then tutored 
Arcadia High in 1940 and 
produced a state cham- 
pionship football team that 
carved a 13-1 record. 

"We're fortunate to have a 
man of Coach Mize's caliber 
as meet referee," said Dyes. 
"Here's a man that all 
athletes in the meet can look 
up to."

The 1973 spring semester 
intramural sports program 
and schedule was announced 
last week by Dr. Joyce 
Hillard, intramural director. 

The schedule lists nine 
men's and ten women's ac- 
tivities. It includes both team 
and individual competitions 
and lists deadlines for entries 
in each event. 

Dr. Hillard said that entry 
forms for all events should be 
picked up and returned to the 
Intramural Office in the 

Graduate Health and P.E. 
Build Jig. She stressed that the 
deadlines set in the program 
will be observed in each sport. 

Students may participate as 
individuals or as part of a 
team or group. No entry fee 
will be charged and awards to 
individuals and teams will be 
given through the Recreation 
division of the Department of 

Health, Physical Education, 
and Recreation. 

Also, the first six place 
finishers in all tournaments 
will receive points toward the 
overall men's and women's 
team and individual trophies. 

In team points tabulated 
thus far, Kappa Sigma leads 
the overall men's division 
with 95 points, followed by Phi 
Epsilon Kappa with 52 and 
Sigma Tau Gamma with 47. 
The Ex-Jocks lead all in- 
dependent teams with 42 
points, followed closely by 
Couyon 8 with 32. Bossier Hall 
is on top of the residence hall 

class with 30 points. 

Point totals in the women's 
division show Delta Psi Kappa 
in the overall lead with 50 
points, but there is a five-way 
race for the second spot. Tops 
in this battle is Sigma Kappa 
with 38 points, while Phi Mu 
and the Misfits have 35 each, 
Tri Sigma has 29, and the BSU 
has 27. 

Two tournaments in other 
sports have been carried over 
into the spring semester. 
Twenty participants remain in 
the single-elimination pool 
tourney and five players are 
left in the intramural chess

Walls becomes only the 10th 
player in Northwestern 
football history to gain first 
t eam A 1 1 - A m e r i c a n 
recognition. NSU's last Ail- 
American was Al Dodd, who 
starred for the Demons at 
safety in 1966. 

& 6-foot-2, 265-pound senior, 
Wills was the "Rock of 
Gibraltar" in Northwestern 's 
defensive line at his tackle 
post. He sacked opposing 
runners 21 times behind the 
line of scrimmage and had 93 
primary tackles during the 
1972 season. 

"We would have liked it if 
other teams would have run at 
Larry more often," said 
Northwestern head football 
Coach George Doherty. "He's 
a most deserving young man. 
His selection is a credit to his 
hard work and desire. We wish 
him well in the future." 

Northwestern defensive line 
Coach Jerry Arledge also had 
words of praise for his prize 
player. "Larry did everything 
well for ms... He'd take on a 
blocker and then all of a 
sudden he'd hit the ball 
carrier solid. He was con- 
sistent for us throughout the 

Walls, who was named 
"Defensive Player of the 
Week" in the Gulf South 
Conference and Louisiana at 
least once during the season, 
received one of three "Out- 
standing Contribution" 
awards at Northwestern 's 
annual football banquet 

"We feel like we had one of 
the better defensive teams in 
the nation this year," said 
defensive coordinator Gene 

Knecht. "I'm happy that one 
of our outstanding defensive : 
players has been rewarded. 
Our defense yielded only 8.1 
points per game." 

Walls, who plans to work in 
juvenile probation and parole 
following graduation, was 
pleased with the honor 
bestowed upon him. "I've got 
to give a lot of credit to my 
teammates and the coaches," 
said Larry. "I hope I can also 
make a contribution off the 
football field." 

A modest individual, Walls 
is Northwestern 's first black 
Ail-American in any sport.

Drop System : Education's Tool or Handicap?

lie current system of 
pping courses at Nor-

resign from a particular 
;s enrollment without 
ie penalty up until the 
k preceeding the final

lauded by school ad- 
istration, faculty and 
ents. Replacing the 
itional policy of 
lizing a student who

University administrators, 
while recognizing certain 
flaws in the liberal drop 
policy, feel that such a system 
> is in the best interest of the 


I Registrar Walter P. Ledet, 
\ whose office each semester 
processes an estimated 5,000 
drop-add cards, said that the 
"philosophy of dropping 
courses in itself is excellent" 
but that the no-attendance 
guidelines for juniors and 
/ seniors hinder its success. 

"The State Board of 
Education ruling requires no 
attendance regulations for 
upper classmen, so the 
weakness in the drop system 
is that juniors and seniors do 
not have to go to class," Ledet 

System Gaining Popularity 

He added that the drop 
'policy was initiated almost 
two years ago on the Nor- 
thwestern campus to expose 
he marginal student to a full 
semester's course work so 
Jiat a student would be more 
amiliar with it when he 
epeated the course. 

Northwestern was the first 
■tate university in Louisiana 
o allow the almost unlimited 

followed suit. The system has 
also become increasingly 
popular in larger universities, 
particularly in the East. 

Students at the University of 
South Carolina have a variant 
form of the drop system where 
grades lower than "C" are not 

Though Ledet found that the 
present drop system did 
"sufficient good for a large 
enough number of students to 
warrant continuation, ' he 
admitted that the ad- 
ministration needed "to 
resolve, to do away with the 
inequities to prevent students 
from taking advantage of the 
drop program.'' 

In past semesters a few 
Northwestern enrollees at- 
tempted tr abuse the at- 
tendance and drop regulations 
by setting up a guise as full- 
time students with no actual 
intention of pursuing a college 
education. They found em- 
ployment in the Natchitoches 
area and used the college 
dormitories and cafeteria 
facilities as cheaper means of 

At least one of these was a 
military service veteran 
drawing a monthly federal 
check from the GI bill. 

To alleviate some of the 
unforeseen problems resulting 
from the extended drop 
period, the Dean's Council is 
currently evaluating and 
discussing the situation and 
possible remedies. The Dean's 
Council, made up of the ad- 
ministrative heads of the 
university's seven individual 
colleges, is chairmaned by Dr. 
C. F. Thomas, vice president 
of academic affairs. 

Dr. Thomas said that the 
Council, subject to approval 
by President Arnold R. 
Kilpatrickj is seriously con- 
templating reducing the time 
period a student may drop a 
course. Currently a student 
has 18 weeks to withdraw from 
a class; under the new 
regulations the time would 
expire in the twelfth or thir- 
teenth week of the semester. 
Dr. Thomas said that these 
adjustments would probably 
be effective in the upcoming 
summer semester. 

'Academic Progression' 

Another change that has 
been proposed and discussed 
is one where a student's 

topping of courses, but ad- teacher, adviser and 
ditional schools have now academic dean would con fer.

presidential race to a young 
Massachusetts senator and in 
the 1962 California guber- 
natorial contest to a powerful 
incumbent, and the possible 
reasons for these defeats, are 
explored and examined in full 

After his disastrous loss in 
his native state, Nixon was 
declared politically "dead" by 
most observers. But he proved 
to be resilient. 

In The Nixon Nobody Knows 
Spalding manages to capture 
the character and drive that 
brought a defeated 
Republican forward on an 
incredible comeback trail- 
one that culminated in the 
White House. 

and decide if his "academic 
progression" would warrant 
continuation in that class. 
Under this set-up, the student 
who did not attend class 
regularly could be dropped 
from the class roll when it was 
determined that he had 
"passed the point of no 

a university could not decide 
whether a student who suc- 
cessfully completes a course 
at the first time of enrollment 
actually is better mentally 
equipped for that course than 
the student who makes the 
same grade on this second or 
third try. 


"I suspect that most drops 
can be anticipated well in 
advance by both professor and 
student. Perhaps some sort of 
compromise may be worked 
out so that if a student has 
been lax in meeting assign- 
ments or in attendance, a 


return" and successful 
completion of the course was 
virtually impossible. 

Registrar Ledet said that 
such a student would in all 
probability receive a "W" on 
his transcript, carrying no 
grade point penalization} Dr. 
Thomas said "if a person has 
an "F" in a class because he 
has just repeatedly cut class, 
I'd be inclined to have him 
retain the "F." But as of now, 
we don't know how we can 
work that." 

Dr. Thomas added that he 
was against any type of 
regulations concerning the 
number of times a student 
could enroll in a particular 
class or a designated number 
of course hours that a student 
could not drop. 

"If a student is willing to 
pay the money and take a 
course 25 times, he should be 
allowed to do so," he said. 

Claiming that the only 
complaints on the drop system 
came from university faculty 
members, Dr. Thomas con- 
tinued that "almost everyone 
sees that the good outweighs 
the bad so much in this 
system." Dr. Thomas said 
that one drawback with the 
delayed drop system is that it 
permits a student who is 
cognizant of the eventuality of 
his dropping a course to 
purposely harass the teacher. 

Dr. Thomas also stated that 
"every teacher should give a 
minimum of four tests" and 
require enough classroom 
activity to discourage ex- 
cessive class absences. In 
doing so, Dr. Thomas 
asserted, the teacher would 
solve much of the probelm. 

One argument against the 
generous drop system is that 
the academic standards of the 
university could be lessened 
by graduating those students 
who ordinarily would not be 
likely collegiate material. 

"I know that the second 
objection some of the 
professors use against the 
drop program," Dr. Thomas 
stated];' is that they believe it 
lowers academic standards. 
But I think they go up instead 
of down."

Faculty members have 
generally not held the present 
drop system in such high 

Besides creating a teaching 
burden on the faculty mem- 
ber, the drop system presents 
the teacher with sometimes 
unmotivated, uninterested 

Dr. E. Robert Black, head of 
the Department of Speech and 
Journalism, said, "The 
practice of dropping a course 
with no penalty attached does 
not seem to be the real 
problem. It is the abuse of this 
practice-the habitual drop- 
per-this is the problem. 

"A student who gets into the 
habit of dropping classes loses 
money and time, and he 
complicates his curriculum 
program," Dr. Black said, 
adding that he felt such 
habitual dropping was "high- 

"grace period" could be set up 
at midterm. The student 
would have a period of two or 
three weeks after midterm to 
make improvements. If he 
does not show any attempts to 
improve within this time, he 
will automatically be dropped 
from the course." 

Dr. C. B. Ellis, assistant 
professor of sociology, 
recognizing advantages as 
well as disadvantages in the 
drop system, noted that 
"While it permits a student 
who will have to repeat 
anyway to stay in a class and 
absorb as much as possible, 
some students have misused 
the drop privilege and have 
functioned as marginal 
students who haven't accepted 
the responsibilities of the class 
in full sincerity, knowing that 
they can drop the class." 

Feeling that serious con- 
sequences can result by a free 

system of dropping courses, 
Dr. Ellis concluded, "It is 
possible that the overall 
academic level of the 
university can be damaged by 
this liberal drop system 
because some students tend to 
take a course less seriously in 
the knowledge they can drop it 
if they're not satisfied with the 
grade they anticipate 

Another professor, who 
requested that he not be 
named, said "On the whole, 
the system is misused. If the 
students would use the system 
honestly, it could be 

He pointed out that his 
system has given the student a 
third alternative when he 
enrolls in a class: he can drop 
it. Such a safety valve, he 
explained, could have adverse 
effects on the incentive of the 

"The present system takes 
the pressure off the student. 
Is it better that the student 
should have this pressure of 
knowing that he is 'locked 
into' a course?" he asked. 

Students generally find the 
drop system to their ad- 
vantage, but do not 
necessarily believe in 
limitless restrictions. SBA 
Secretary Tommie Smith 
said, "It makes it feasible to 
arrange your schedule during 
the semester. It's definitely a 
good idea. 

"It's your time and money 
that you're spending in 
college," Tommie continued, 
"and I feel it's up to the 
student if he doesn't want a 
particular course to count." 

But Tommie does feel that 
certain qualifications could be 
placed on the drop system 
without endangering its 

Standards Suffer 

"There should be a limit on 
the number of times a student 
is allowed to take a course. If 
he cannot pass it after two 
times, he should forget it," she

Reorganization Slated 
For ROTC Program 

Efficient and effective 
organization is the new theme 
of the Army ROTC Program 
with the department at NSU 
falling into the fold. 

The reorganization of the 
Army ROTC administrative 
and supervisory structure 
under the new Training and 
Doctrine Command 
(TRADOC) will result in a 
more simplified and direct 
chain of command. 

While the structure of the 
293 colleges and universities 
offering Army ROTC will not 
be changed, the overall 
management of the Army 
ROTC Program is to be im-

The change from the U.S. 
Continental Army Command 
(CONARC) will constitute 
four new ROTC regions under 
the command of the TRADOC 

Northwestern will be a part 
of the third region with its 
headquarters at Ft. Riley, 
Kans. This region will also 
direct ROTC programs in 
seven other states. 

According to Capt. D. F. 
Sullivan, assistant professor 
of Military Science, the 
program will only have one 
major change concerning the 
cadets. This is the weekly 
formation on Wednesdays at 1 
pjn. These are designed to 
better orient the cadet with his 
position in such formations. 

Future events for the ROTC 
program at NSU include 
several field operations; the 
NSU Rifle Team, under the 
direction of Sgt. Larry 
Heffernan, traveling to Ft. 
Riley, Kans., to participate in 
the National Matches and the 
Black Knights Drill Team 
under the direction of Sgt. 
Arlon Rogers, departing for

Jours In Debate 


4 J 

jjjgients on the newly revised teacher 
vo j c i system ranging from "If they don't 
..^something's wrong with them," to 
^ ,ver really satisfied with anything the 
time around," were given by ad- 
ministrative personnel and faculty members 
iiring the past couple of weeks. 
The revised system, in actuality, is based 
(i an interm report which was made up from 
he recommendations submitted by three 
eparate committees. The report, reading 
Tactically verbatim with the recom- 
sendation by the faculty committee ap- 
jointed by President Arnold Kilpatrick calls 
tr a full teaching load for nine-month faculty 
lobe 15 "equated" lecture hours. This allows 
teachers instructing labs and other non- 
ecture classes to tally % of a lecture hour for 
wery non-lecture hour they teach. 
Department heads will carry nine hours if 
heir department has nine members or less, 
md six hours if it is comprised of ten or more 

Deans' teaching loads were set at three 
ecture hours each semester, while a vice 
resident's teaching load calls for three 
lecture hours during a 12-month period, when 
't all possible. 

They revised workload system also takes 
tto consideration the faculty members who 
ire "engaged in individual research, 
miversity services, or direction of 

paduate research." These members are 
iowed reduced teaching loads as deter- 
mined by the academic dean and department 
tead involved, and approved by the office of 
fce Vice President of Academic Affairs. 

Faculty members engaged in individual 
ssearch or directing graduate research 
Just first submit a research plan to their 
epartment head and dean for approval. It 
*en goes through the NSU Research Council, 
from there the council's recommendation of 
Sliced teaching load, if any, is submitted to 
fte office of the Vice President of Academic 

f fairs. 

The interm report also made specifications 
off-campus teaching for both nine and 
^elve month faculty. 
Faculty members interviewed were 
^sically in favor of the revised system, but 
that more time was needed for the system 
10 be in practice before they could really 
*ahiate it. They also stressed that the report 

was only an interm report and that all three 
committees would be making revisory 
recommendations for the coming semesters. 

One such recommendation could probably 
originate in the Language Department. 

"In the language department, it was 
decided that teachers teaching three fresh- 
man level courses would teach a 12 hour 
load," stated Dr. Donald Hatley, instructor of 
English. "But most members of the graduate 
faculty teaching fewer than nine hours of 
freshman level courses are teaching 15 

The Faculty Senate and Administration 
Committee had recommended that "faculty 
who have passed the doctoral generals and 
are actively engaged in dissertation 
research, and faculty who have terminal 
preparation in their teaching field are nor- 
mally assigned to teach nine to twelve credit 
hours in a semester and six to nine credit 
hours in a summer session." This did not 
» appear in the current interm report. 

Perhaps the college most adaptable to this 
workload system is that of Science and 

"I think this system will work out pretty 
well," said Dr. Rene Bienvenu, Dean of 
Science and Technology. "I have a number of 
people who have received reduced loads for 
research purposes. A lot were approved, 
but we couldn't approve some of them 
because of the course requirements." Some 
instructors, he said, were the only people 
qualified to teach in certain special areas. 
'•'The needs of the students in the courses 
came first," he explained. 

"We're trying to meet a balance in teaching 
and research at the university level," he 
said, "but we still have to adjust to the im- 
mediate circumstances." 

Most of his faculty members are teaching 
15 adjusted hours and some are carrying 
more.He explained that two individuals in one 
of his departments were doing research but 
were still carrying 15 hour loads. This was 
due to one of the previously mentioned special 
course areas. 

Despite these instances, he added, "I think 
this is a positive step in setting up research 
projects. After at least a year or so under this 
system, I think we will be able to decide what 
changes would be best for every university

Bicycles that have not been registered, 
should be registered at the Natchitoches 
Police Headquarters. No bicycle will be 
registered at Campus Security. Bicycles are 
to follow the same regulations as all other 
vehicles on campus. 

Only the current parking permits should be

Mayfield To Appear 

SU Plans Concerts 

By Linda Johnston 

Curtis Mayfield, singing artist that recently 
left the soul music act the Impressions, will 
be NSU's Big Name Entertainment for the 
spring semester on March 6. Originally, Sly 
and the Family Stone were scheduled, but 
due to internal problems within the group, 
their appearance was cancelled. 

Mayfield a producer, songwriter, arranger 
and all-around young music executive, has 
been listed by Billboard Magazine, as one of 
the top album male vocalist. Currently, 
Mayfield is known for his most recent hit 
album, "Superfly." 

Later in the semester, there is a possibility 
of arranging a concert featuring Don Mc- 
Clean. A second possibility is the Doobie 
Brothers. Both appearances depend upon the 
budget for the current semester which cannot 
be tabulated presently. If funds are not 
available for both concerts, the En- 
tertainment Committee will present one 
concert featuring Rare Earth. 

Check Cashing Easier 

During the fall semester, a rap session was 
held in the Student Union Ballroom, where 
interested students gave their suggestions for 
groups for the spring semester. The En- 
tertainment Committee used these 
suggestions in picking from a list of eligible 

The Entertainment Committee has had 
difficulty in booking the more popular 
groups. The cost of well-known groups is one 
problem. Entertainers such as Chicago, Cat 
Stevens and such charge more for one 
concert than the committee is allowed per 

Also, many artists would rather appear at 
towns with servicable airports rather than 
driving to Natchitoches from other towns. 
The artists are then faced with the problem of 
making sure their instruments arrive in 
plenty of time to set up for the performance. 

The committee also has to handle demands 
of booking agents. Agents usually wish to 
book groups in large towns which provide 

more exposure for the groups. Agents also 
prefer to book groups where they receive a 
percentage. At NSU, they do not receive 
percentages because students are admitted 
free with I. D. cards. 

Sometimes the reason for a group not 
signing a contract is NSU's inability to meet 
provisions of the group's contract such as 
having proper acoustics. 

The last problem is dates groups are 
available. Groups generally have contracts in 
the geographical area before they will sign. 
Dates for concerts must be scheduled on days 
when the Coliseum is not in use. 

Students interested in becoming members 
of the Entertainment Committee may be 
interviewed by Eddie Hebert in 
the Student Union Board Conference 

Students are invited to attend the open 
meetings of the Student Union Board, 
Wednesdays at 5 : 30 p . m . Any suggestions are 

Discounts Given 

By Donna McDonald 

The Chamber of Commerce and members 
of the SBA have cooperated to put two 
policies into effect for NSU students. 

The first policy will aid students in cashing 
larger checks at local banks. A student 
should obtain a letter of recommendation 
from his hometown bank and bring it to local 
banks. An explanation of this procedure will 
also be in next year's orientation class. 

Another policy concerns a five percent 
discount on items granted to NSU students by 
participating Natchitc \es stores. According 
to Mrs. Hazel Brown of the Chamber of 
Commerce, placards were personally 
delivered to the 40 participating stores 
although not all signs are displayed. All that 
is needed for the student discount is a student 
I. D. card.

Committee Liberalizes Policy 

By Cheryl Thornhill 

According to Bill Schwartz, director of 
housing all students wishing to fill out an 
application for off-campus residency should 
do so in his office at least two weeks prior to 
the beginning of each semester. The twelve- 
member housing committee will then review 
the request and notify the student of the 
decision within a reasonable length of time. 

Housing policies at Northwestern are 
based on the State Board of Education's 
philosophy that dormitory living is a part of 
the total educational function of the in- 
stitution in providing the best education for 
each individual. The board recognized and 
emphasized this when they adopted a policy 
of rules in Nov. 1969, for all colleges and 
universities under its jurisdiction. 

Bill Schwartz explained that the Housing 
Committee has a dual purpose in serving the 
school. "They are responsible for granting 
off-campus housing approval, and also 
progressive changes for on -campus 

He further indicated that the committee 
was directl. responsible for recommending 
such policies last semester as the liberalizing 
of curfew hours for female students and the 

open house policy for all dormitory residents. 
All students living on the NSU campus have 
been affected by the change in policy. 

Until the modification of the open house 
policy women students were allowed special 
guests only on "Mom and Dad's Day" and the 
first and last days of the semester when they 
were moving in and out of the dorms. Now 
both men and women students are allowed 
special guests. 

Last fall also marked the beginning of the 
no hours policy now in operation. This land- 
mark decision requires only freshmen women 
to have regular curfew hours. 

Before a student can obtain permission to 
live off-campus, he must prove at least one of 
the following: (1) substantial hardship for 
financial reasons will result if an application 
is disallowed; (2) substantial hardship for 
medical reasons; (3) substantial hardship for 
any other sound reason will occur; (4) the 
applicant is a returning military veteran or 
previously married person or other person 
who by virtue of age and experience is in- 
compatible with the educational objective 
and values sought to be provided in on- 
campus residence. 

The State Board of Education adopted 

these criteria after the federal case Pratz 
vs. La. Tech. In this federal court case, a 
student attempted to sue the university for 
Jie right to live off-campus. Judge Ben 
Dawkins ruled in favor of the school. This has 
set the precedent for colleges and univer- 
sities all over the nation. 

AMS To Hold Elections 



In conjunction with the AWS, the 
Associated Men Students will elect officers 
for the forthcoming year on Feb. 21. 

In preparation for the election, nominations 
will be taken from the various men's dorms. 
Also, anyone wishing to file for an office may 
do so in the Vice-President of Student Affairs 
Offhe. Deadline for filing is 4 p. m.yFeb. 9. 

Tne four officers to be elected are 
president, vice president, secretary and 
treasurer. Terry Coburn, president of AMS, 
stated that a new office may be created this 
year. The exact title of this office has not

Park Near Completion 

Plans f or a park area adjacent to Caldwell 
Hall, wnich began two years ago are now 
nearing completion. Plans were begun when 
David Precht was president of SGA. Funds 

allocated by the SBA totaled $500. Last fall 
the drawings were sent to a landscape artist 
where they were tied up for eight months. The 

latest delay has simply been maintenance, 
according to Greg O'Quin. Concrete was 
poured last week, and approximately 50 
plants have been placed. Benches are to be 
spaced around the fountain and in the grass 
surrounding the area. The Alumni 
Association contributed funds for the pur- 
chase of the fountain.

Of Sanity? 

By N'iva Davis 

Campaign Cuties" 

If any student at Northwestern was asked if he 
felt it was important that he have the right to vote 
for his choice of an SBA officer and represen- 
tative, he would most probably give an af- 
firmative reply. If he was then asked if he saw 
the possibility of a dangerous situation arising 
in the case of an SBA whose members were 
appointed by a handful of students, in all 
probability, he would again give an affirmative 
reply. Perhaps it would be best at this time I 
explain what I am getting at. 

Since the 1972 spring elections for the 1972-73 
SBA positions, there have been several major 
changes in those elected positions . As of Friday, 
February 2, the president, vice president, and 
treasurer have been changed. Three senators at 
large have been replaced, including the clerk of 
court. One class senator has also been replaced. 
\ccordingto Ronnie Grappe, newly appointed vice 
president, last night's meeting was to be the 
deciding meeting for two more senators at large, 
due to their repeated absences. 

I am not blaming the SBA for their action in 
appointing people to these positions. I can un- 
derstand that due to the time element involved 
when these vacancies occurred, the SBA had no 
alternative other than to fill these vacancies in 
order to function as a working body. 

What I am stressing is that any student seeking 
any elected position should understand and accept 
the responsibility he owes to the people whose 
faith and trust helped get him elected. The 
situationarising in the case where a large number 
of positions must be appointed rather than 
elected could lead to the abuse of power by a few. 

The responsibility of every SBA position is a 
great one. What one would make of such a 
position is largely dependent on the person's 
initiative and sincere interest in promoting his 
fellow students' welfare. 

In the past, many NSU students have laughingly 
called SBA elections the annual popularity 
contest. I hope students will take this information 
for what it is worth. If your eye is on an SBA 
position for the upcoming year, for God's sake, 
review the responsibilities of your decision with a 
sincere interest in your voters' welfare. Don't aid 
in degrading the SBA to the level of a 
meaningless ego trip. 

Safety Hazards 

In order to answer questions concerning both 
recent and past safety hazards, the following 
information was obtainbed from Dr. Frank 
Martin, vice president of research and develop- 

In accordance with state fire marshal recom- 
mendations, certain safety hazards have been or 
are in the process of being remedied, stated Dr. 
Martin. During registration, this semester, all 
doors which were comsidered emergency exits 
which had previously been secured with ropes, 
were left unobstructed. 

The Home Economics Building also received 
recommendations from the fire marsnal. Ac- 
cording to Dr. Martin the doors to this building 
are not equipped with panic bars. Anyone left in 
the building after it has been locked would be 
trapped inside. Measures are now being taken to 
alleviate this hazard. 

Another building receiving comment was 
Bienville Hall. Upon examination of the upstairs 
level of the building, the fire marshal recom- 
mended that the students and equipment be 
relocated as quickly as possible. Beginning this 
coming summer, Bienville Hall will begin a 
relocation process to Watson Library. 

A Wr etching Emotion 

By Dorothy Jarzabek 
Associate Editor 

Roughly two tnousand years ago a great man 
wanted to vomit the lukewarm out of his stomach. 
I don't feel equal to stand in his shadow, but I 
understand the emotion he wanted to wretch 
from. Northwestern seems stagnated at a con- 
stant temperature conveniently in the absolute 
middle of any thermometer it is confronted with. I 
come alive when the temperature changes with 
the emotions and energy of involvement. 

But being lukewarm, totally indifferent, and oh 
yes, the old cliche of being apathetic sickens me. 
My sanity often wonders if the constant un- 
changing environment is affecting me. Maybe so. 

Sure there are some student and faculty who 
care to get involved, but a small minority. Try to 
start a discussion on politics and you find few 
ears. Goby the Student Union Cafeteria and hear 
the small talk on dates, tests and drugs. But find 
someone talking about theory, politics, 
philosophy art, etc., and I'll say 'Thank God.' 
Sure you can't ignore the first line of discussion, 
but when it's all you can talk about there's 
something wrong. 

Try to start some involvement, and for the 
most part, its the same people you saw at your 
last committee meeting or group discussion. The 
various groups really concerned with the school, 
politics, art. etc. go begging for interest. 

I don't mean to limit it to students. I often 
wonder how much a faculty member wont say 
or talk about because he is scared. Scared ot 
what? I don't know because they are scared to 

Well so much for this. I need something for my 
stomach. But if you think I have over- 
exaggerated o r am lying, stay around and see it 
anyone even cares to dispute this point with me. 

An Outline f 
Of Policy 

By Steve McGee 
SBA President 

The buck may have stopped 
at Harry S. Truman's desk 
and it may very well make an 
intermediate stop now and 
then at Dr. Kelpatrick's, but 
on the whole its busy making 
the rounds at the lower levels 
of the academics. With this 
thought in mind I'll take my 
turn at bat. 

The rumblings that are 
heard are from students and 
faculty that occupy these 
areas below the ad- 
ministration and depending 
upon which group you're a 
member of is the only way 
that one knows who's at the 
bottom of this " socio- 
educational" ladder. 

With the typical NSU 
student being better prepared 
and less naive than those that 
preceeded him, it is with these 
qualifications that he has 
become involved in the 
struggle for academic 

At a "student demon- 
stration" a couple of years ago 
someone asked, "Nor- 
thwestern, do you know what 
time it is?". At that time I 
thought little of this statement 
until recently when I realized 
that it was not unusual for 
one's course work to over the 
three "R"'s and to ignore 
those students that call for a 
revival of what they feel 
pertinent to meet their needs 
as students. 

It seems as if it is in vogue to 
be one who reads to fill his 
time in class as lecturer either 
from his personal notes or 
from the text where students 
read silently along. 

Once again in reference to 
the one-way street of teacher- 
evaluation forms, it was a 
relief to know that according 
to Dr. Kilpatrick the State 
Board is considering this and 
the opportunity to reach all 
students is not yet dead. 

Yet, perhaps through my 
own weaknesses I may very 
well have overlooked the core 
of many problems facing 
instructors at NSU and with 
that statement I'll toss the buck 
around a little myself. It 
seems unrealistic and almost 
immoral to place the amount 
of teaching hours that are 
required of NSU profs. 

In order for a lecturer to be 
enthusiastic, creative, and 
useful it does little good to 
burden him or her with a load 
that he cannot cope with. And 
in all probability it hits him at 
a point where he may have a 
desire to rejuvenate, yet 

So, the point that needs to be 
made is that one cannot ask a 
professor to do a good job if 
burdened with an excessive 
number of teaching hours. 


The St. Paul (Minn.) 
Dispatch recently tested 
vending machine sandwiches 
to see how they shaped up in 
terms of purity. The paper 
concluded that "there is no 
guarantee that (the vending 
machine sandwich you bought 
for lunch) did not contain 
more than a million bac- 
teria... per gram or was not 
contaminated with potential 
disease-causing organisms." 

Two reporters, Robert 
Whereatt and Linda Kohl, 
bought samples from the 
machines of several com- 
panies, had the samples 
analyzed by an independent 
laboratory, and asked three 
food science experts to 
review the results. "Half the 
sample prompted... criticism 
from at least one" of the 
experts, they reported. The 
Dispatch also named the 
source of each sandwich.

In order to offer a more cordial and pleasant atmosphere 
for meetings and gatherings in the Student Union Building, 
the Union Board Research and Development Committee is 
considering the redecoration of various rooms including the 
lobby areas of the first and second floors. The committee at 
present is looking into priority needs, price lines and 
creative ideas. 

Considerations at present include the panelling of several 
conference rooms, the construction of locked glass publicity 
casesjthe division of the lobby area into conversation 
areas. Any suggestions or ideas may be referred to this 
committee by calling 6351 or by coming by the Union Board
